DENTSVILLE, Md. - A Maryland mother who lost her daughter in a crash linked to an ignition defect says the $35 million fine levied against General Motors isn't nearly enough.
Last week, federal regulators fined General Motors for the delayed recall of 2.6 million cars for an ignition defect linked to 13 deaths.
The fine was the maximum civil penalty that the Transportation Department could impose.
"If you take a look at what GM earned last year it was in the billions. Thirty-five million dollars is what GM could earn in a day or two," said Laura Christian.
