General Motors Knew of Ignition Switch Defect

Some things never change.  Even with increased U.S. automobile regulations and a “more litigious culture,” U.S. consumers continue to drive in death traps.  In the 1970s, it was revealed that Ford knew that its Pinto exploded upon rear-ending, but continued to produce them, and avoid implementing the $11 safety solution.  Similarly, this year, it was revealed…
