Don’t ask the car electronic questions about its own smog. That’s like using sending Lance Armstrong a questionnaire about the dope in his blood before a race.

The penalties are just not enough to deter anyone. However, the west has democratically elected leaders and all these companies have a business that depends on consumers. You need to recognize that the people of the US and EU are a weak bunch of master worshippers. The people of the US and EU have neither the strength nor the desire to elect stronger leaders with a leaning toward justice nor will they boycott these corporate fascists. They will grovel in fear as they always do because they are weak and better off as slaves to cruel masters than to have to live with the consequences of their own decisions.
