Toyota paid the hefty fine of $16.4 million today for the delayed recall of the 2.3 million vehicles affected by the gas pedal fiasco. Interesting to note is that this is the largest safety fine in history. While Toyota did pay the fine they denied wrong doing (of course they did). The payment was paid in full via an electronic transfer to the U.S. Treasury. The payment will not go to NHTSA rather it will be going to the general fun that will be used to pay off debt. One has to wonder if this saga is over or if it is just the closing of the chapter.
