North Hills police departments report no problems with carbon monoxide leaking into the cabins of Ford Explorers in their fleets.
But they are taking steps to ensure the vehicles their officers drive don’t make their job even more risky.
The announcement of an engineering analysis by the agency comes on the heels of a large number of reports of carbon monoxide exposure by owners, with more than 2,700 complaints registered.
The issue of exhaust fumes leaking into the cabin may be linked to three crashes and 41 injuries, the NHTSA noted.
Franklin Park police Chief Donald Dorsch and the borough’s fire Marshal last week tested the department’s seven 2011-17 Explorers with carbon monoxide detectors.
