big fines issued to Polaris. Let’s hope the shock wave leads to improved warranty and recall in our brand. http://www.startribune.com/polaris-industries-pays-27-25-million-settlement-to-consumer-product-safety-commission/478547013/

😳 USD$27.25 Million dollar fine!!  That is a huge fine.  Smaller company would be bankrupt... I guess it just shows how serious this issue is treated by the authority.
Let's be kind to one another.

Quote from the report: While the company agreed to the settlement, it did not admit guilt

I can't see too much changing in regards to warranty work.

Sad  for the families of the 15 year old that died and others injured of course. The penalty almost seems to light.

Agreed, but the penalty was not for the casualties, the penalty was for not reporting it to authorities in a timely manner - so this is just a non compliance tax. 

Sadly the casualties don't see any of this as it is not intended to provide compensation (if I am reading this correctly). 

If Polaris admitted that there was fault on their part then it would possibly open the doors to civil action on behalf of the victims.

Because they haven't admitted guilt still does not protect them from civil action and the way the Americans are they may have already been serve
