    Hmmm, the “fault” was basically if you had one of those overloaded or heavy keychains, it could turn the ignition off, in all of what, 13 accidents? Granted, a faulty design, but not as significant as many other design “faults”, like including all the electronic displays on a screen in the dashboard, and ENCOURAGING distracted driving, just stupid!

    Execute the CEO’s and the shareholders will applaud (that it isn’t THEM……..)

    A correction, it was 31 total accidents, and 13 fatalities. Hmm about the same number of accidents over a number of years, as the number of gun deaths in the U.S., EVERY DAY!!

    Ike was so far ahead of his time on gay marriage when he observed that “What’s good for GM is good for the country.”

    Back in the early ’90s, when consumer use of Windows computers really took off, I had to explain things to my brother-in-law. I told him that while they were relatively user-friendly, they were not idiot-proof. He sighed, and said he wished for the sake of people like him they were idiot-friendly.
    .
    With crash-avoidance systems, and GPS, and all the other various conveniences, cars are becoming more and more idiot friendly. Eventually they will probably be semi-sentient and practically drive themselves. Even then idiots will find ways to get hurt.

    @dtroutma

    You don’t really want to start keeping score between gun deaths and auto deaths do you? I hope not if your goal is to make some kind of (probably flawed) anti-gun point. How many of those gun deaths were suicides? How many were gang related? And for the love of God, before you start demanding that all guns be confiscated – ironically at gunpoint – how many of those deaths were committed with a gun that was possessed illegally?

    Citizen control – I mean gun control – is off topic for this toon, but do you have any facts to back up your position?

    I wish I could agree with you that there are no accidents with guns. If everyone handled them the way you and I were taught there would be a lot less, but they still happen. If you’re implying that every auto related death is an accident then I have to ask about the people who know damn well that they’re impaired, but they get behind the wheel anyway. And however small, there ARE auto related suicides and even murders. Having said all that and hijacked this thread from its original point even further…Of course I don’t propose confiscating cars. I just had to take the time to object to dtroutma’s post.

    If they’d have the decency to run into a Ford Pinto we could blame it on them.

    “Until Executives are held criminally liable for business decisions they know will result in public injury or deaths but will save the company money we will continue to have these episodes.”

    Not a bad idea. Not bad really.

    I wonder if the union was involved in the delay?
