The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced today its cumulative list of fines and civil penalties against automakers.

The biggest — also revealed today — is a $70 million fine for Honda for failing to report 1,729 death and injury claims to the federal government.

Last year the NHTSA  issued a total of $126 million in fines … the most ever.
