SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Title: Highway Crash Data Collection for the Evaluation of Antilock Brake Systems (ABS) and Rear Impact Guards on Heavy Vehicles. OMB Number: 2127–0614. VerDate jul<14>2003 16:49 Feb 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 Type of Request: Request for public comment on proposed collection of information. Abstract: As required by the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 and Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735), NHTSA reviews existing regulations to determine if they are achieving policy goals. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 105 (49 CFR 571.105) and FMVSS 121 (49 CFR 571.12) require ABS and a malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on all new heavy vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds or more. Implementation of the standards was performed over a three-year period; air-brake truck tractors manufactured on or after March 7, 1997, air-brake trailers and single-unit trucks manufactured on or after March 1, 1998, and hydraulic brake trucks manufactured on or after March 1, 1999. FMVSS 223 (49 CFR 571.223) and 224 (49 CFR 571.224) set minimum requirements for the geometry, configuration, strength and energy absorption capability of rear impact guards on full trailers and semi-trailers over 10,000 pounds GVWR manufactured on or after January 26, 1998. NHTSA’s Office of Planning, Evaluation, and Budget is planning a highway crash data collection effort that will provide adequate information to perform an evaluation of the effectiveness of ABS and rear impact guards for heavy trucks. This study will estimate the actual safety benefits (crashes, injuries, and fatalities avoided) achieved by the standards and provide a basis for assessing whether the standards are functioning as intended. Highway crash data will be analyzed to the extent that the experiences of heavy trucks equipped with ABS and rear impact guards can be compared with the experiences of heavy trucks not so equipped. Affected Public: State and Local Governments in North Carolina. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The annual burden is estimated to be 4,036 hours. Addresses: 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.

This notice of receipt of an application is published under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the application.
