Progress: Takata executives criminally charged re air-bag fraud

Some good news. It’s about time.  See: Takata executives criminally charged in US probe of faulty air bags:

The indictment alleges the executives, who worked at Takata both in Japan and the U.S. for decades, participated in manipulating test data. The action comes as Takata is expected to separately plead guilty to criminal wrongdoing and pay $1 billion to resolve a U.S. Justice Department probe of the supplier’s handling of air bags that risk rupturing and spraying shrapnel in vehicle cabins, a safety problem linked to 11 deaths and 184 injuries in the U.S. alone.
