Toyota Put on Probation

March 21, 2014
Twin Tiers (WENY) - After accepting the $1.2 Billion penalty that ends the criminal investigation of Toyota, a federal judge has put the company on a three year probation, saying Toyota created a reprehensible picture of corporate misconduct. Toyota admits it deceived regulators about sticky accelerators and floor mats that jam under pedals. Toyota will be closely watched until March 2017, if there are any new instances of safety flaws being covered up, the case gets reopened.
