    Title: Hazard Perception and Distracted Driving Training 
Intervention for Teens
    Type of Request: New information collection requirement.
    Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 
(NHTSA) proposes to collect information from newly-licensed teen 
drivers for a one-time voluntary study to evaluate Risk Awareness and 
Perception Training (RAPT), a hazard perception and distracted driving 
training intervention to improve novice driver safety. NHTSA proposes 
to collect information from a sample of newly-licensed teen drivers in 
two States to determine (1) their eligibility to participate in a study 
to evaluate RAPT hazard perception training; (2) their hazard 
perception performance before and after they complete RAPT or placebo 
training, and again six months after training; and (3) their driving 
exposure via driving logs to account for potential differences across 
participants. In addition, participants will agree to allow researchers 
to access their crash and citation records for six months to support 
analyses of the effects of RAPT training on crash and citation rates. 
NHTSA will invite an estimated 20,000 newly licensed drivers ages 16 
through 19 in two States to participate, with the goal of recruiting 
10,000 volunteers--7,500 from a first State and 2,500 from a second 
State for validation. Participation will be voluntary and solicited 
through the distribution of recruiting letters at Department of Motor 
Vehicle locations (DMVs) when new drivers obtain their license. Once 
obtaining consent from the teen and their guardian(s) through an 
informed consent agreement, study participants will be randomly 
assigned within age and sex categories to either participation in the 
RAPT or the placebo condition. Participants in the RAPT condition will 
complete the training protocol; those in the placebo condition will 
view a vehicle maintenance video. A subsample of 2,000 participants 
will also be asked to complete a week-long trip log to record driving 
exposure during the study period. The 7,500 participants in the first 
State will be invited to complete a six-month follow-up test to see 
whether they retained the RAPT training; these participants will also 
be asked questions about any crashes or traffic tickets during their 
first six months of driving to capture any unreported crashes or 
incidents. NHTSA will use the information to produce a technical report 
that presents the results of the study. The technical report will 
provide aggregate (summary) statistics and tables as well as the 
results of statistical analysis of the information, but it will not 
include any personal information. The technical report will be shared 
with State Highway Safety Offices as well as other stakeholders 
interested in improving the safety of novice teen drivers. The total 
estimated burden for recruitment (2,000 hours), the initial training 
(7,500 hours), the trip log (1,167 hours) and the follow-up data 
collection (1,875 hours) is 12,542 hours.
    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 in Washington, DC, on August 3, 2018.

Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
