Yamaha ATV Problem: Death, Solution: Free Repairs And Free Helmets

The CPSC has announced a a free repair program to address safety issues with all Yamaha Rhino 450, 660, and 700 model off-highway recreational vehicles.

The CPSC says:

CPSC staff has investigated more than 50 incidents involving 46 driver and passenger deaths in these three Rhino models. More than two-thirds of the cases involved rollovers and many involved unbelted occupants. Of the rollover-related deaths and hundreds of reported injuries, some of which were serious, many appear to involve turns at relatively low speeds and on level terrain.

if you own one of these things, you should stop using it and contact your dealer to take advantage of the repair program and a free helmet offer.
