According to CBS News, at least 12 deaths have been linked with faulty ignition switches in certain GM model cars. These ignition switches can unintentionally turn to the ‘off’ or ‘accessories’ position at unpredictable and inopportune times when motorists are driving. If this happens, the engine or electrical systems can shut off without warning, leaving drivers and passenger occupants in dangerous and potentially deadly situations.
