GM first carmaker to have safety issues overseen by government

Las Vegas residents trust their safety to the vehicles around them on a daily basis; they drive, ride in public transportation, and navigate around cars as they walk along roadways.

When this trust is breached, these companies can face federal fines, severe court-ordered punishments, business litigation and criminal lawsuits.
