Honda heavily fined for reporting violations

Federal auto safety regulators ordered Honda Motor to pay $70 million for breaking a safety  reporting law, The New York Times reported on January 8.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), for more than a decade Honda failed to report many deaths, injuries, and other safety claims associated with their vehicles. The head of the NHTSA, Mark Rosekind, said that automakers will be held responsible for providing timely reports regarding safety issues. Although Honda claimed that they notified NHTSA about the several deaths linked to the Takata airbags, they did not further elaborate on when or how. Honda was fined the maximum of 35 million dollars for under reporting injuries and another 35 million for not reporting warranty claims.
