Toyota to pay $16.4 million for failing to report gas pedal problem

April 18, 2010

After delaying for four months to tell the government about their faulty gas pedals, Toyota will pay the largest civil penalty given to an automaker ever by the government, according to an article by the Associated Press.

Toyota was given a deadline to accept or contest the $16.4 million dollar fine. A transportation official who declined to speak publicly made an anonymous comment saying that Toyota would agree to the fine so as to avoid going to court, according to the article.

Toyota did not comment.
