Toyota's on the hot seat....

Watching the news, and seeing that Toyota is really being grilled by congress.

But what I want to know, is why hasn't the same been done for the banking and credit industries?

Maybe it's something to do with UAW campaign funding and a smidge of bias. (But then again, Toyota apparently does pay its U.S. workers good enough that there isn't a strong incentive to unionize there. Still, union driven companies have a thing vs. companies that don't have those restrictions, etc. And the unionized companies do have a lot of influence here.)

Also it shows the risks of impementing new high-tech systems in mass produced vehicles in safety-critical controls. If you don't have the right redundancies or failsafes in place, it can really come back to bite you in the butt. Why a company such as Toyota doesn't have that done by their engineering talent is beyond me.

Just some observations here, no big rants or anything as of yet.
