Following the recall of near 2.6 million vehicles in February 2014, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued General Motors a list of 107 questions regarding the company’s response to the faulty ignition switches. General Motors’ failure to respond to those questions has prompted a $28,000 fine from the NHTSA, according to the New York Times.
The traffic agency will continue to fine GM $7,000 per day until those questions have been answered. If answers are not forthcoming soon, the NHTSA may seek the help of the U.S. Justice Department.
General Motors claims that its own internal investigation has delayed its response time for responding to the questions.
