Shares in automaker Volkswagen are sliding after U.S.

Shares in automaker Volkswagen are sliding after U.S. environmental officials said the company equipped more models than previously thought with software that let the cars cheat on diesel emissions tests.The VW logo is pictured Sept. 24, 2015. Photo Credit: AP

The problem with the U.S. government’s response to the Volkswagen emissions scandal is that it does not help the people who inhale the nitrogen oxide-contaminated exhaust [“VW chief: I apologized personally to Obama,” News, April 29].

Nothing is being done now to stop these cars polluting the air. Justice delayed is justice denied.

Volkswagen has already admitted to deliberately falsifying emissions tests. It’s not enough. VW should pull these cars off the road and provide loaners to stop the pollution.
