    Well, to you and I, it's a lot of trucks; but to GM, just a slap on the wrist.

    I am impressed by the commitment of "becoming an industry leader in safety".

    Meh, my job started saying that the last year or so too. All in all it added up to more wasted time in "safety" meetings where we sit and watch 20-30 minute long videos that cover about 2 minutes worth of subject matter, and then another 20-30 mins of a retiree who gets paid more than the people who actually make money for the company rambling on and making multiple failed attempts to be funny. The extent of actual change, we now have eye wash stations, and there are floor mats at all the doors that say safety first.

    The fine is well deserved I think. My sister has an 08 cobalt that she better smarten up and get fixed. The ignition hasn't ever failed while driving, but its always been messed up. Sometimes its hard to get the key out, sometimes it won't turn in the ignition.

    I agree with that, but with companies that have been around for decades, they started somewhere decades ago.
