If airbag manufacturer Takata did in fact hide the negative results of testing on their airbags they should fact both civil and criminal chargers. Hiding these results may have put the lives of millions of consumers worldwide at risk. It would not be unreasonable to ban the use of their product in vehicles sold in the US.
i do believe that some sort of punishment should go to Takata for hiding results of a secret airbag testing. If Takata had results that showed a defect in the airbag and didn't say anything,hundreds of people could have been injured because of a problem with their airbag that Takata didn't report.
When any company performs safety tests and hides results, there needs to be punishments. The punishments need to be severe so they understand that this is serious. Takata hid results that could harm humans; especially children. If we allow companies leeway in doing such things, we will find more safety recalls and harm to humans.
Yes, I think Takata should be punished for hiding the results of a secret airbag testing. Anytime public safety is at risk, the information should not be allowed to be secret. All tests should be public information so that the population can decide whether they feel the test result was adequate to purchase the vehicle
