Takata Airbags *Headdesk, headdesk*

So I gather this has been a thing for the last couple days, but all of a sudden the government and media have a bug up their collective rears about the number of cars with Takata airbags still on the road, and the thrust of everything I’ve seen so far leads one to think it’s the drivers’ fault. As I understand it, Takata was having trouble manufacturing enough replacements before filing bankruptcy, and it’s not gotten any better. My uncle’s Merc was recalled, but he was told they were concentrating on more humid states first, and he’s been on a wait list for at least a year now. Am I wrong in thinking this new push is mis-targeted?
