Teen driving safety will be the topic of conversation at Canyon del Oro High School on Monday night.

School Resource Officers from the Oro Valley Police Department will hold the Impact Teen Drivers Program at Parent's Night. The event will be held for both Canyon del Oro and Ironwood Ridge high schools.

One in four fatal crashes in the U.S. involve someone between the ages of 16 and 24, according to OVPD.

A news release also stated that more than half of teens involved in fatal crashes were not wearing seatbelts. Texting or emailing while driving is an issue for nearly half of all high school students in the U.S., aged 16 years or older.

The teen safety driving program on Monday, April 21, will begin at 6 p.m. in the Cyber Café located at 25 W. Calle Concordia.
