DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration


Reports, Forms, and Recordkeeping Requirements; Agency 
Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. chapter 35), this notice announces that the Information 
Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below will be submitted to the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. The ICR describes the 
nature of the information collection and its expected burden. A Federal 
Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was published on June 13, 
2012 (Vol. 77, No. 144/FR pp.35473-35475).

DATES: Submit comments to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on 
or before July 18, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary Hinch at the National Highway 
Traffic Safety Administration, Office of Behavioral Safety Research 
(NTI-132), W44-466, Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey 
Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590. Mary Hinch's phone number is 202-366-
5595 and her email address is mary.hinch@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0665.
    Title: NHTSA Distracted Driving Survey Project.
    Form No.: NHTSA Form 1084.
    Type of Review: Revision of previously approved collection of 
information.
    Respondents: Licensed drivers 18 years of age and older residing in 
the communities participating in the distracted driving demonstration 
program. Participation by all respondents would be voluntary and 
anonymous. The surveys would not collect any personal information that 
would allow anyone to identify respondents. A Spanish-language 
translation and bilingual interviewers would be used to minimize 
language barriers to participation.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: A maximum of 20,000 licensed 
drivers.
    Estimated Time Per Response: The interviews are estimated to run 5 
minutes in length.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 1,667 hours.
    Frequency of Collection: Each respondent will only participate in 
the survey once.
    Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 
(NHTSA) proposes to conduct awareness surveys to evaluate a traffic 
safety program designed to reduce texting and driving. The program will 
be conducted at the community level in two States. Information on 
attitudes, awareness, knowledge, and self-reported behavior would be 
collected.
    The findings from the proposed information collection would build 
on existing knowledge and contribute to our safety goal of reducing 
distracted driving. In 2010 and 2011, NHTSA conducted a high visibility 
enforcement distracted driving program in Hartford, Connecticut and 
Syracuse, New York focusing on hand-held phone use. The current project 
would expand the distracted driving program to focus on texting 
behavior. This data collection would provide great insight into the 
application of the high visibility enforcement model to reduce texting 
amongst drivers.
ADDRESSES: Send comments regarding the burden estimate, including 
suggestions for reducing the burden, to the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street 
NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: Desk Officer for Department of 
Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or by 
email at oira_submission@omb.eop.gov, or fax: 202-395-5806.
    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 
notice.

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

Jeff Michael,
Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
