Reports, Forms, and Record Keeping Requirements, 18826-18828 [2017-08075]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 18826 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 76 / Friday, April 21, 2017 / Notices collections and their expected burden. NHTSA published a 60-day Federal Register notice for this collection on December 28, 2016 (81 FR 95729). The agency received 0 comments on that notice. Title: Confidential Business Information. Type of Request: Reinstatement of a currently approved collection.1 Form Number: This collection of information uses no standard forms. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three (3) years from the date of approval of the collection. OMB Control Number: 2127–0025. Frequency: Submission of information pursuant to this regulation will depend on the frequency with which a given entity, such as a manufacturer of motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment, submits information and a request that NHTSA hold the information confidential, generally pursuant to Exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4). Affected Public: This collection of information would apply to any person who seeks to have NHTSA treat as confidential information submitted to NHTSA either voluntarily or pursuant to a mandatory information request issued by NHTSA. Thus, the collection of information could apply to any of the entities over which NHTSA exercises regulatory authority. Recent trends lead NHTSA to estimate that it will receive approximately 500 requests for confidential treatment per year throughout the duration of this collection. Large manufacturers make the vast majority of requests for confidential treatment. Abstract: NHTSA’s Confidential Business Information (CBI) rule, coupled with case law, has governed the submission of requests for confidential treatment of information for over 20 years. Estimated Annual Burden: Using the above estimate of approximately 500 requests for confidentiality per year, with an estimated eight hours of preparation to collect and provide the information, at an assumed rate of $24.92 per hour, the annual estimated cost of collecting and preparing the information necessary for 500 complete requests for confidential treatment is about $99,680 (8 hours of preparation × 1 NHTSA published a 60-day notice seeking a renewal of Information Collection 2127–0025 on December 28, 2016. Because NHTSA will be unable to submit the request for renewal of this collection to OMB prior to the collection’s expiration on April 30, 2017, we are now requesting that the approval for this collection be reinstated rather than requesting that the approval be renewed. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Apr 20, 2017 Jkt 241001 500 requests × $24.92). Adding in a postage cost of $3,325 (500 requests at a cost of $6.65 for postage (priority flat rate envelope from USPS)), we estimate that it will cost $103,005 per year for persons to prepare and submit the information necessary to satisfy the confidential business information provisions of 49 CFR part 512. Requesters are not required to keep copies of any records or reports submitted to us. As a result, the cost imposed to keep records would be zero hours and zero costs. Number of Respondents: We estimate that there will be approximately 500 requests per year. Summary of the Collection of Information: Any entity seeking confidential treatment for information submitted to NHTSA will be required to request confidential treatment from NHTSA and to justify that request. To obtain confidential treatment of submitted information, the submitting entity must comply with the requirements in NHTSA’s CBI regulation and satisfy the requirements for one of the exemptions provided under the FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b). 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. Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, 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. ADDRESSES: Issued in Washington, DC, under authority delegated in 49 CFR part 1.95.

The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulations (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment 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 agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks public comment on the following proposed collection of information: Title: Psychological Constructs Related to Seat Belt Use. Type of Request: New information collection requirement. OMB Clearance Number: None. Form Number: NHTSA Forms 1365 and 1366. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: 3 years from date of approval. Summary of the Collection of Information: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposes to conduct a nationally representative web-based survey using the Growth for Knowledge (GfK) KnowledgePanel, a probability-based web panel that has been in existence since 1999, to identify psychological constructs and psychosocial factors associated with the non-use and parttime use of seat belts. This research would give the traffic safety community greater insight regarding characteristics of seat belt nonusers to inform development of countermeasures tailored to more effectively encourage seat belt use among this group. The survey would measure self-reported seat belt use, psychosocial factors, and psychological constructs to understand how these factors are related. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Apr 20, 2017 Jkt 241001 A maximum of 20,394 KnowledgePanel panelists would be contacted via email to obtain 6,000 completed surveys. Of the 20,394 panelists contacted, it is estimated that approximately 50% or 10,197 potential respondents would log into the web portal to complete the screener instrument. It is estimated that 95% of those who complete the one minute screener (about 9,687) would be eligible for participation in the survey. Eligible panelists include U.S. residents aged 16 years or older who have driven or ridden in a motor vehicle (defined as a ‘‘car, van, truck, taxi or ride-sharing service’’) within the past year. Eligible participants would be sampled to obtain a sufficient number who report not wearing seat belts all of the time. Of the 6,316 sampled eligible, it is estimated that 95% or 6,000 would complete the full 19 minute survey. The total estimated burden for this data collection is 2,070 hours. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information—NHTSA was established by the Highway Safety Act of l970 (23 U.S.C. 101) to carry out a Congressional mandate to reduce the mounting number of deaths, injuries, and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes on the Nation’s highways. As part of this statutory mandate, NHTSA is authorized to conduct research as a foundation for the development of motor vehicle standards and traffic safety programs. Seat belts reduce the risk of death by 45% among drivers and front-seat passenger car occupants and by 60% among drivers and front-seat light truck occupants across all crash types—yet, not everyone uses a seat belt on every trip. According to the latest National Occupant Protection Use Survey (NOPUS), seat belt use in the United States was 90% in 2016. Although a high percentage of people were observed wearing seat belts through NOPUS, among passenger vehicle occupants killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2015, only 51% were wearing a seat belt. Thus, there is still room to save lives by getting more people to wear seat belts. In order to develop programs with potential to reach those who do not wear seat belts, we need to know as much as we can about this group. Currently, we know a lot about the demographic correlates of seat belt use (e.g., age, gender), but we do not know much about other individual-level contributors to nonuse.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
before an agency submits a proposed

[[Page 18827]]

collection of information to OMB for approval, it must publish a 
document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and 
otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies 
concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has 
promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a 
document. Under OMB's regulations (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must 
ask for public comment 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 agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
    (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks public comment on 
the following proposed collection of information:
    Title: Psychological Constructs Related to Seat Belt Use.
    Type of Request: New information collection requirement.
    OMB Clearance Number: None.
    Form Number: NHTSA Forms 1365 and 1366.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: 3 years from date of 
approval.
    Summary of the Collection of Information: The National Highway 
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposes to conduct a nationally 
representative web-based survey using the Growth for Knowledge (GfK) 
KnowledgePanel, a probability-based web panel that has been in 
existence since 1999, to identify psychological constructs and 
psychosocial factors associated with the non-use and part-time use of 
seat belts. This research would give the traffic safety community 
greater insight regarding characteristics of seat belt nonusers to 
inform development of countermeasures tailored to more effectively 
encourage seat belt use among this group. The survey would measure 
self-reported seat belt use, psychosocial factors, and psychological 
constructs to understand how these factors are related.
    A maximum of 20,394 KnowledgePanel panelists would be contacted via 
email to obtain 6,000 completed surveys. Of the 20,394 panelists 
contacted, it is estimated that approximately 50% or 10,197 potential 
respondents would log into the web portal to complete the screener 
instrument. It is estimated that 95% of those who complete the one 
minute screener (about 9,687) would be eligible for participation in 
the survey. Eligible panelists include U.S. residents aged 16 years or 
older who have driven or ridden in a motor vehicle (defined as a ``car, 
van, truck, taxi or ride-sharing service'') within the past year. 
Eligible participants would be sampled to obtain a sufficient number 
who report not wearing seat belts all of the time. Of the 6,316 sampled 
eligible, it is estimated that 95% or 6,000 would complete the full 19 
minute survey. The total estimated burden for this data collection is 
2,070 hours.
    Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the 
Information--NHTSA was established by the Highway Safety Act of l970 
(23 U.S.C. 101) to carry out a Congressional mandate to reduce the 
mounting number of deaths, injuries, and economic losses resulting from 
motor vehicle crashes on the Nation's highways. As part of this 
statutory mandate, NHTSA is authorized to conduct research as a 
foundation for the development of motor vehicle standards and traffic 
safety programs.
    Seat belts reduce the risk of death by 45% among drivers and front-
seat passenger car occupants and by 60% among drivers and front-seat 
light truck occupants across all crash types--yet, not everyone uses a 
seat belt on every trip. According to the latest National Occupant 
Protection Use Survey (NOPUS), seat belt use in the United States was 
90% in 2016. Although a high percentage of people were observed wearing 
seat belts through NOPUS, among passenger vehicle occupants killed in 
motor vehicle crashes in 2015, only 51% were wearing a seat belt. Thus, 
there is still room to save lives by getting more people to wear seat 
belts. In order to develop programs with potential to reach those who 
do not wear seat belts, we need to know as much as we can about this 
group. Currently, we know a lot about the demographic correlates of 
seat belt use (e.g., age, gender), but we do not know much about other 
individual-level contributors to nonuse. The purpose of this research 
is to identify psychological constructs and psychosocial factors 
associated with the non-use and part-time use of seat belts to inform 
the development of countermeasures.
    Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, 
and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information)--
Under this proposed data collection, the potential respondent universe 
would be U.S. residents aged 16 years or older who have driven or 
ridden in a motor vehicle within the past year. Survey participants 
would be recruited from the KnowledgePanel using email invitations to 
obtain 6,000 completed surveys. Each participant would complete a 
single survey; there would be no request for additional follow-up 
information or response.
    Throughout the project, the privacy of all participants would be 
protected. Access to the survey would be controlled using a password-
protected email account and web portal. Surveys would be self-
administered and only accessible for a designated period. These 
measures protect respondent responses from being compromised.
    Personally-identifiable information, such as the postal address of 
sample members, would be kept separate from the data collected and 
would be stored in restricted folders on secure password protected 
servers that are only accessible to study staff who need to access such 
information. In addition, all data collected from respondents would be 
reported in aggregate, and identifying information would not be used in 
any reports resulting from this data collection effort. Rigorous de-
identification procedures would be used during summary and feedback 
stages to prevent respondents from being identified through 
reconstructive means.
    Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden 
Resulting from the Collection of Information--NHTSA estimates that the 
total respondent burden for this data collection would be 2,070 hours. 
NHTSA would contact 20,394 KnowledgePanel panelists via an invitation 
email to obtain 6,000 completed surveys. Of the 20,394 panelists 
contacted, it is estimated that approximately 50% or 10,197 potential 
respondents would log into the web portal to complete the screener 
instrument. The estimated burden for the screener is 170 hours (10,197 
* 1 minute = 10,197 minutes/60 = 170 hours). Based upon the screening 
questions as well as the sampling plan, it is estimated 510 respondents 
would not be eligible and that 3,371 eligible respondents would not be 
sampled (selected to complete the full survey). Based upon a 95% 
completion rate

[[Page 18828]]

among the 6,316 sampled respondents, it is anticipated that 6,000 
respondents would complete the full survey. The estimated burden for 
the full survey, which would average 19 minutes in length, is 1,900 
hours (6,000 * 19 minutes = 114,000 minutes/60 = 1,900 hours). The 
participants would not incur any reporting cost from the information 
collection. The participants would also not incur any record keeping 
burden or record keeping cost from the information collection. The 
overall estimated burden for this data collection is 170 hours for the 
screener and 1,900 hours for the full survey for a total of 2,070 
hours.
