The unfolding saga of the defective Takata airbags continue. There is a new development almost daily.

Automaker executives have agreed to expedite the replacement of the Takata parts in their vehicles. Just two days after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration called for an expanded nationwide recall of vehicles with air bags with a deadly defect that can cause them to explode during inflation, senators questioned Takata Senior Vice President of Global Quality Assurance Hiroshi Shimizu on recent reports that the auto supplier ordered technicians to destroy data including video and computer backups containing evidence of air bag defects, and that it had known about the defect since at least 2004.
