NO RATINGS
Junko, your previous article "New 'Runaway Toyota' Case Tests DOJ's Integrity"

stated that

"Toyota was fined $1.2 billion earlier this year,"

Now you state "It's [NHTSA] seeking a big increase in the ratings budget this year,"

So whatever happened to the $1.2 billion (which, in the long run, is paid by Toyota customers)?  And is the USA the only country that has fined Toyota?

Another round of theatrics

NHTSA is a murderous little stooge for the auto industry and has been from the get go. This is a dog and pony show - like the "investigation" of Toyota - designed to pave the way for making sure that nobody at NHTSA goes to prison. And rest assured that the automotive industry will buy its way out of any meaningful protections for consumers.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
