    Title--NHTSA Distracted Driving Survey Project.
    Type of Request--Regular.
    OMB Clearance Number--2127-0665.
    Form Number--NHTSA Form 1082.
    Respondents--Telephone interviews will be administered to a 
national sample of people 16 and older who have access to a residential 
landline and/or a personal cell phone.
    Estimated Number of Respondents--30 pretest respondents, 6,000 
survey respondents, and 200 non-response bias respondents, for up to 2 
administrations of the survey for a total of 12,460 respondents.
    Estimated Time per Response--20 minutes per pretest and main survey 
interviews. 10 minutes per non-response interview.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours--2,043 hours x 2 
administrations (4,086 hours total).
    Frequency of Collection--The survey will be administered in 2014 
and possibly again in 2016.
    Abstract--The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 
(NHTSA) proposes to collect information from a national random sample 
of 6,000 (12,000 total for both administrations) members of the general 
public age 16 and older. The sample will be stratified by NHTSA region, 
age, and gender. The National Survey on Distracted Driving Attitudes 
and Behaviors (NSDDAB) will ask about (a) attitudes, behaviors, and 
perceptions related to driving distractions and electronic device use 
while driving, and (b) the effectiveness of high visibility enforcement 
demonstration programs to increase public awareness of the dangers of, 
and legislation related to, distracted and unsafe driving behaviors. 
The national survey will be preceded by a pretest administered to 30 
respondents. Interview length will average 20 minutes. This approval 
will be for the third and fourth administrations of the NSDDAB. 
Participation by respondents will be voluntary and anonymous. Cell 
phone and non-response bias respondents will have the option to receive 
a small monetary incentive. The personally identifiable information 
(name and mailing address) used for respondent payment will be held 
separately from the respondents' survey responses so that no connection 
can be made between the two. All results will be reported in the 
    The telephone interviewers will use computer-assisted telephone 
interviewing to reduce interview length and minimize recording errors. 
A Spanish-language translation and bilingual interviewers will be used 
to minimize language barriers to participation. NHTSA will use the 
findings from this proposed information collection to build upon and 
add to the existing knowledge on distracted driving and to help track 
behavior and attitude changes that can be used to tailor distraction 
program efforts and to assist States, localities, and communities in 
developing and refining distracted driving programs.
    Comments are Invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department of Transportation, including whether the information 
will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate 
of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance 
the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; 
and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology. A comment to OMB is most 
effective if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication of this 

    Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A).

    Issued on: December 20, 2013.

Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
