WASHINGTON (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. said Monday it will pay a record $16.4 million fine for its huge acceleration recalls and then moved to recall new Lexus SUVs to address potential rollover problems. Despite paying the fine, the Japanese auto giant denied violating any U.S. laws. The penalty, the largest the Transportation Department could legally seek, was the equivalent of Toyota paying more than $2 for every vehicle it sold around the globe in 2009. Analysts said the penalty would have little impact on dozens of lawsuits, which have been combined before a federal judge in Santa Ana, Calif.

Commentary Like many Americans, I had paid some, but not much, attention to the motorsport known as NASCAR - until I learned there was cheating, lying and deceit involved. This changes everything. It's like, no one ever paid any attention to Robert Hanssen before they learned he was selling lists of the Pentagon's favorite restaurants to the Reds. Cheating in NASCAR? We expect that behavior in Major League baseball, but not here. Actually in NASCAR, I'm told, that's not completely true.
