ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is 
announcing a meeting that will be held in Washington, DC on March 10-
11, 2016 to explore ways to promote evidence-based behavior change in a 
traffic safety setting. The Driving Behavioral Change in Traffic Safety 
workshop will include presentations and discussions on a number of 
topics including analysis and feasibility of using different approaches 
to changing behavior; exploring promising untested strategies; 
identifying long-term pathways to eliminate fatalities; and considering 
how evidence-based behavior change strategies can be used in the 
broader policy discussion. Attendance at the meeting is limited to 
invited participants because of space limitations of the DOT Conference 
Center. However, the meeting will be available for live public viewing 
on the NHTSA Web site (www.nhtsa.gov).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NHTSA will host a workshop to launch a new 
behavioral safety initiative. The Driving Behavioral Change in Traffic 
Safety forum will begin with an introduction by NHTSA Administrator 
Mark Rosekind, followed by presentation of the history of NHTSA's 
behavioral safety programs and a discussion of its status in practice. 
The forum will also include panels focusing on evidence-based behavior-
change strategies; the feasibility of using different approaches to 
behavior change in traffic safety; consideration of promising 
strategies that are not evidence-based; a discussion of the changes 
necessary to achieve near-zero traffic safety deaths; and how to place 
this issue in the broader policy context to drive action.
    Invited participants will include representatives from a number of 
topic areas including the behavioral sciences, traffic safety, and 
public health, as well as from diverse organizations including advocacy 
groups, industry, state government, and other Federal Agencies.
    NHTSA will use this forum to discuss research and program 
objectives, consider priority public policy needs to address behaviors 
that lead to deaths and injuries in traffic crashes. Addressing 
behavioral safety is a top priority for this Administration.
    Workshop Procedures. NHTSA will conduct the meeting informally. 
Thus, technical rules of evidence will not apply.
    The workshop will consist of presentations and panels. Each panel 
will have two or three short presentations, a roundtable discussion 
among the panel members, and questions from the other participants to 
be discussed by the meeting participants.
