Capital Metro is now outfitting all of their SUV's with carbon monoxide detectors.

This comes after Austin Police pulled all of their ford explorers off the streets over an issue that causes the vehicles to fill with the toxic gas.

20 officers tested positive for carbon monoxide in their blood -- three of them still have not returned to work.

CapMetro says their Explorers are not the same model as APD's but they're adding the detectors out of an abundance of caution.
