DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration


Reports, Forms, and Record Keeping Requirements Agency 
Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), U.S. 
Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice

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

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces that the Information 
Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below has been forwarded to the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The ICR 
describes the nature of the information collection and its expected 
burden. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period 
soliciting public comments was published on March 25, 2015 (Federal 
Register/Vol. 80, No. 57/pp. 15866-15867).

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before September 8, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725-17th 
Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Kathy Sifrit, 202-366-0868.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Older Drivers' Self-Regulation and Exposure.
    Type of Request: New information collection requirement.
    Abstract: Research has shown that drivers 75 and over have a crash 
rate nearly double that of drivers between the ages of 25 and 65. In 
addition to increased crash rates, older drivers are also more likely 
to be killed in automobile crashes when compared to younger age groups. 
Some research showed that drivers aged 75 to 79 were 3.5 times more 
likely to be killed in an automobile crash than drivers 30 to 65 years 
of age. This ratio jumped to 9.5 after age 80. Factors such as 
declining cognitive and motor skills may help explain these older 
driver crash statistics. Some older drivers may attempt to offset any 
functional declines by adopting compensatory or self-regulatory 
behaviors (e.g., slowing down, braking earlier, limiting conditions or 
times of day in which they drive, and/or voluntarily giving up 
driving).
    This research effort is focused on determining how much older 
drivers self-regulate their driving through changes in behaviors or by 
reducing exposure. The project involves an initial questionnaire 
collecting information from licensed drivers about their age, driver 
license status, driving habits, vehicle type and age, and the extent to 
which they self-limit their driving exposure. The project plans to 
recruit a total of 60 participants, 20 of whom are 60-69, 20 who are 
70-79, and 20 who are 80+ years of age. Staff will attempt to recruit 
equal numbers of males and females in each age group and to distribute 
the ages across each interval. Qualifying participants will have a 
tracking device installed in the vehicle for approximately 30 days. The 
device will record all trips made by the participant. At the end of the 
30-day tracking period, each participant will be asked to take a 
battery of standard clinical functional measures and complete an on-
road driving assessment administered by a certified driving 
rehabilitation specialist. Researchers will examine the driving 
behaviors of participants based on age group and other covariates 
collected during the initial questionnaire and assessments.
    The results of this project will assist NHTSA in determining the 
relative extent to which older drivers appear to be aware of their 
cognitive and motor skill deterioration, and whether their perception 
of declining ability was affecting driving behaviors and exposure.
    Affected Public: Participants will include 60 licensed drivers who 
drive a minimum of 3 trips per week, 20 of whom are 60-69, 20 who are 
70-79, and 20 who are 80+ years of age.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 120 hours maximum.
    Comments are invited on the following:
    (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection;
    (iii) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
    (iv) 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).

    Issued on: August 4, 2015.

Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
