Just like adults, kids can get hooked on petroleum. Research
shows that automobile use can lead to addiction. This addiction
is often fatal: Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause
of death in the United States for children and young adults,
ages 1 to 24.
If you suspect that your child is becoming petroleum-dependent,
you can get help by contacting your child's school counselor,
family physician, or your local
bicycle-activist group. To learn more about the risks
of petroleum use and its signs and symptoms, visit www.theanti-drug.com
or visit our partners at Carbusters.
There is an International
Recovery Organization devoted to helping the petroleum-dependent
to overcome their crippling addiction.
