GeneralSo the GM ignition switch issue in the US PinmemberMunchies_Matt9-Apr-14 5:56 
Apparently the air bags didn't go off due to a failure in the switch and 300 people died.
 
Now, question, is it mandatory for a manufacturer to fit air bags in their cars?
 
Did the air bags gong off kill the people or was it the fact they crashed, die to their own, or someone elses bad driving?
 
Can GM be held responsible for the death by failing to prevent it, rather than causing it? Of so, how many of the rest of us can be held responsible by failing to prevent a death? You see a guy jumping off a bridge, you fail to prevent him, are you now a murderer?
 
I don't see GM as being guilty of anything more than trade descriptions act, their goods didn't act as advertised. That's all.
