We have the complete list of dangerous cars and trucks

Would you deliberately do something that you know could cause you serious injury or even death?

If you're ignoring a recall issued for the car you drive, you may be. And you've got lots of company.

According to CARFAX, more than 2.5 million vehicles that have received "Do Not Drive" or "Park Outside" safety recalls have not been repaired as of May 1.

"Despite efforts by state and federal governments – and the auto industry itself – too many consumers are driving in vehicles that have been deemed too dangerous to drive, or that shouldn't be parked in or near a home for fear of a fire," said Faisal Hasan, General Manager for Data at CARFAX. "Officials and communities need to break through consumer recall notice fatigue and drive home the message: We can save lives today by getting these recalls fixed."

Notifications should be taken seriously

A "Do Not Drive" recall advises drivers not to operate their vehicles because a serious safety issue could lead to an accident or physical harm.

A "Park Outside" recall is issued for vehicles with a high risk of causing a fire. Owners are advised to park these vehicles outside of garages and parking structures, and away from buildings.

Roughly 200 separate models from various automakers, over multiple model years, for which "Do Not Drive" or "Park Outside" safety recalls have been issued:
