National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may order speedier recalls for Takata airbags

It appears that decision makers in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) may be on the verge of requiring expedited recalls for car makers and suppliers impacted by the rupture prone Takata air bag. As a spokesperson for NHTSA stated, “We will use every tool available to protect public safety.” The Takata airbags have been linked to eight deaths and more than 100 injuries. William Riley, of Riley Williams & Piatt, LLC stated, “The needless personal injuries and deaths that have occurred because of the actions of Takata are an example of what happens when a company ceases to care about people. Corporations are composed of people and as we have recently seen with Volkswagen, some of these corporations have created cultures of deceit in their employees and officers.”
