In Japan, laws require automakers to get permission from the government to test their trucks on public roads but Isuzu has been doing it for years without notification. The pre-production trucks have caused multiple accidents that caused one death and 27 injuries. Isuzu president Yoshinori Ida and 14 other top executives have taken pay cuts of up to 30 percent for two months retribution for the scandal. Gee thanks. Isuzu said that the tests were performed to see how far and fast prototype vehicles could run and that all the 104 accidents that have happened since 1985 were human error and not defects to the vehicles. Isuzu's been spending too much time with Mitsubishi Fuso.
