ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Oro Valley Police are sending a message to teen drivers that "ignorance can kill you."

National Auto Collision Centers granted a $1,100 donation to the OVPD School Resources Unit to help fund incentives for a teen distracted driving program, according to department officials.

OVPD launched the Impact Teen Driving courses in August 2013 to provide training to teenage drivers on consequences of distracted and reckless driving, which officials said is the number one killer of teens in the U.S.

OVPD School Resource Officers teach the program curriculum in Oro Valley high schools. As an incentive, students to complete the course receive an "I.C.K.Y." (Ignorance Can Kill You) note to carry in their vehicles as a reminder to avoid distracted driving.
