NATIONAL (WTVM) - The Consumer Product Safety Commission has a warning for off-road riders, especially those riding Yamaha Rhino vehicles.

The agency is urging riders and passengers to remain vigilant about safety.

As of June, the agency has received nearly 60 fatalities involving Yamaha Rhino vehicles.

Back in March, a free repair and helmet giveaway was offered to all owners of rhino 450, 660 and 700 vehicles.

This was intended to enhance stability and to reduce the potential for a rollover.

Owners can still call a Yamaha dealership for the free upgrades.
