Toyota to pay record fine over safety problems

Toyota Motor has agreed to pay a record $17.4 million to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for safety problems that led to a 2012 recall of some of its Lexus RX350 models, CNNMoney reports.  That's the largest fine allowed by law for a single investigation.

    I've never cared for the Lexus line.

    Congress needs to raise the limit on that fine.

    pray tell, where does the money go?
    If the fine is earmarked whose ears are marked?
    If it is put in bank whose bank is it?
    Whose name on the bottom of check and who is not getting a penny of it if they own a Lexus?
