Documents show yet another GM recall failure

Posted on Monday, June 2nd, 2014 at 3:28 pm    

Detroit, Michigan-based automaker General Motors Co. recalled a small batch of Pontiac G6 midsize cars because of a faulty brake line system in 2009 but failed to recall approximately 2 million vehicles with the same braking system until May of this year.

According to GM spokesman Adam Adler, the problem with the later model G6s, Chevrolet Auras, and Saturn Malibus was shared with dealers, but not with car owners directly, resulting in a safety problem that GM management failed to look into for years.

The main problem posed by this particular automobile recall is that a vehicle’s brake lights may not light up when the brake pedal is pressed, failing to warn drivers that these vehicles will be slowing down or stopping. Additionally, GM noted that this problem could be connected to a number of other issues, including concerns over cruise control disengaging and the vehicle shifting out of “park” unexpectedly.

Manufacturers have a responsibility to provide safe products to consumers, and to announce any defects or malfunctions in a timely manner in order to ensure consumer safety.

Hit-and-run attributed to previous brain injury

Posted on Tuesday, May 27th, 2014 at 3:47 pm    

According to Danny Foster, attorney for Colorado fire chief’s wife Adriene Garcia, Garcia likely fled the scene of a car accident that injured two children because of a previous brain injury, CBS Denver reported on May 15.

Aurora fire chief Mike Garcia called 9-1-1 as soon as he learned about the incident. In a statement Foster made to CBS 4, he confirmed that Adriene had a pre-existing brain condition from an accident that occurred several years earlier, thereby explaining why she left after causing the wreck. Police were able to contact Adriene 21 minutes after she left the scene.

Excessive speed or alcohol were not a factor in the accident, police authorities said. Prior to this incident, Garcia possessed a clean driving record.

Colorado police officers not penalized for car accidents they caused

Posted on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014 at 5:32 pm    

An investigation by Denver-based CALL7 shed light on several Colorado police officers who were never sent to court after causing several vehicular accidents, thereby maintaining clean driving records.

According to CALL7, over 300 preventable car accidents from 2011 to 2013 had been caused by members of the police department.

A personal injury attorney interviewed by CALL7, Kyle Bacchus, explained that the police department can avoid being held liable for personal injury accidents caused by an officer if the matter is not touched by civilian agencies and is solved internally.
