Judge Declines to Order 'Park it Now' Notices for GM Cars

Thursday, 17 Apr 2014 01:16 PM

A federal judge on Thursday rejected a bid to compel General Motors Co. to tell customers to stop driving millions of cars that have been recalled for defective ignition switches.

Attorneys representing several vehicle owners had sought an emergency order directing GM to issue "park it now" notices for the 2.6 million vehicles that have been recalled since February over the switches, saying they were too dangerous to remain on the road. GM opposed the motion, arguing that the cars were safe to drive as long as nothing extra was attached to the key while it was in the ignition.

U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos in Corpus Christi, Texas, denied the request in a ruling on Thursday.
