Toyota agrees to pay fine

Japanese carmaker Toyota has agreed to pay a record $16.4 million fine to US safety regulators following recent safety concerns.

Millions of Toyotas were recalled earlier this year amid reports that the pedals could become stuck.

Toyota was asked to pay the fine for failing to inform the US government of safety concerns surrounding faulty accelerator pedals.

The fine is the largest ever handed out by the US transportation department.
