    Title: State of the Practice of Interlock Programs.
    OMB Clearance Number: None.
    Type of Request: New information collection requirement.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: 5 years from date of 
    Summary of the Collection of Information: NHTSA seeks to produce a 
comprehensive document on the state of the practice of alcohol ignition 
interlock device (IID) programs in the United States. The document will 
be a resource for IID program administrators, staff and stakeholders 
working to reduce impaired driving by drivers who have been arrested or 
convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI). Every state, the District 
of Columbia and Puerto Rico has an IID law that provides for or 
requires DWI offenders to install IIDs on their vehicles, which 
requires IID program delivery. This project will collect information on 
IID programs in the nation to identify practices, including promising 
practices, and lessons learned. Participants will be IID program staff 
who complete a 15-minute online self-administered survey and 
participate in a semi-structured interview for approximately one hour.
    Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the 
Information: NHTSA's mission is to save lives, prevent injuries and 
reduce traffic-related health care and other

economic costs. The agency develops, promotes and implements 
educational, engineering and enforcement programs with the goal of 
ending preventable tragedies and reducing economic costs associated 
with vehicle use and highway travel. Impaired driving is a long-
standing highway safety problem. Efforts to reduce impaired driving 
have resulted in impressive improvements, but impaired driving remains 
a significant problem. For example, in 2013, there were 10,076 traffic 
fatalities in crashes involving drivers with a blood alcohol 
concentration (BAC) of 0.08 grams per deciliter (g/dL) or higher. More 
recently, there was an increase of 3.2 percent in the number of 
fatalities in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes from 2014 (9,943) to 
2015 (10,265). Highway safety officials and traffic safety advocates 
identified a need for information on the current state of the practice 
of IID programs as a means to share lessons learned. The objective of 
this data collection activity is to produce a document that addresses 
that need by describing the state of the practice of IID programs 
across the nation, in each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto 
Rico. The document will serve as a resource for IID program 
administrators and staff, policy makers, legislators, researchers and 
advocates. The outcome of the project will support the states and their 
federal partners in the effort to reduce impaired driving and prevent 
the loss of life on the nation's roadways.
    Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, 
and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information): 
The respondents will be from one-to-five designated points-of-contact 
in the IID program in each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto 
Rico. Each program will be invited to complete a 15-minute online 
survey and participate in one phone conference for approximately one 
hour. Each participant will respond to the data collection request a 
single time during the project period.
    Total Estimated Time per Response: The expected average completion 
time for the online survey is 15 minutes per program with up to five 
individuals completing a portion of the survey. The expected average 
completion time for the phone conference is 60 minutes per individual.
    Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden 
Resulting from the Collection of Information-- Participants will incur 
no burden related to annual reporting or record keeping due to the 
collection of information.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: The estimated burden for the 
online survey is 13 hours, assuming 52 programs complete the survey. 
The estimated burden hours for the phone conference ranges from 52 
hours to 260 hours, from one to five individuals per IID program.

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

    Issued in Washington, DC on August 24, 2017.

Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
