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), 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, 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 soliciting public comments on the 
following information collection was published on July 27, 2017.

DATES: Submit comments to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on 
or before April 9, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Randolph Atkins at the National 
Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Office of Behavioral Safety 
Research (NTI-131), W46-500, Department of Transportation, 1200 New 
Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590. Dr. Atkins' phone number is 
202-366-5597 and his email address is randolph.atkins@dot.gov

    OMB Control Number: 2127--New.
    Title: Effectiveness of State Law Enforcement Liaison Programs.
    Form No.: NHTSA Form 1408 and NHTSA Form 1409.
    Type of Review: Regular.
    Respondents: NHTSA proposes to conduct two one-time surveys. The 
first survey will include all the State Law Enforcement Liaisons (LELs) 
across the country. The second survey will include the LELs' 
supervisors from their sponsoring agencies in the 49 States that use 
LELs, either State Highway Safety Office (SHSO) or other sponsoring 
agency personnel.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: There are approximately 240 State 
LELs and 49 staff from the sponsoring agencies that supervise the 
LELs--a total of 289 respondents.
    Estimated Time per Response: There are two survey questionnaires of 
equal length, one for LELs and one for their supervisors. The average 
amount of time for each respondent to complete the on-line information 
collection is estimated at 45 minutes. This includes any time needed to 
retrieve information.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 217 hours.
    Frequency of Collection: The information collection will be 
administered a single time.
    Abstract: State Law Enforcement Liaisons (LELs) promote NHTSA's 
traffic safety programs and initiatives. The way LELs are organized and 
carry out their mission varies widely across States. NHTSA proposes to 
collect information from LELs and their State and/or sponsoring 
agencies to improve NHTSA's understanding of LEL programs in the United 
States and to evaluate the programmatic and cost effectiveness of 
existing LEL approaches. The study will use online website-based 
surveys designed to identify their program characteristics, costs, and 
State-recommended program practices. The following data will be 
collected: Number of LELs, program structure and organization, job 
description, program objectives, reporting requirements, performance 
monitoring practices, program costs, communication networks, reported 
usefulness of specific program practices, site and conference 
attendance practices, and public outreach activities. Study outcomes 
will be used to inform funding agencies and LEL programs about LEL best 
practices and what is required to maintain maximum LEL program 
effectiveness. The information will support States and other agencies 
and organizations in their efforts to reduce and prevent injuries among 
the motoring public using traffic safety programs promoted by the LELs.

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).

    Issued in Washington, DC, on March 6, 2018.
Jeff Michael,
Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
