Austin Police Department Pulls 60 Explorers From Its Fleet After Carbon Monoxide Detectors Went Off

A Texas police department has yanked 60 Ford Explorer police vehicles off the streets after carbon monoxide detectors activated in all 60 SUVs.

This is the same department that installed CO detectors across its fleet a few months ago. I’m guessing they didn’t like the results.

City officials are considering taking about 400 of the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor SUVs completely off the roads until someone can determine what is causing the problems.

City officials want the SUVs off the road, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is in town investigating … so where the heck is Ford in all of this?
