GM to Pay $900 Million to Settle Investigation into Ignition Defect Deaths

USA Today recently reported that General Motors has agreed to pay $900 million in fines to resolve a criminal investigation. The fine is for hiding an ignition defect connected to at least 169 deaths. The $900 million is less than a third of its $2.8 billion in profits last year, according to the Washington Post. Critics claim the settlement is too little and that GM got off easy in light of mishandling and hiding the ignition problems in their cars that led to nearly two hundred deaths.
