ACTION: Request for public comment on proposed collection of information. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Before a Federal agency can collect certain information from the public, it must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Under procedures established by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before seeking OMB approval, Federal agencies must solicit public comment on proposed collections of information, including extensions and reinstatements of previously approved collections. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:14 Dec 02, 2005 Jkt 208001 This document describes the collection of information for which NHTSA intends to seek OMB approval. DATES: Comments must be received on or before February 3, 2006. ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to U.S. Department of Transportation Dockets, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Plaza 401, Washington, DC 20590. Docket No. NHTSA–2005–22932. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Siegler, PhD., Contracting Officer’s Technical Representative, Office of Research and Technology (NTI–132), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Room 5119, Washington, DC 20590. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed 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, and or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks public comment on the following proposed collection of information: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Evaluation Surveys for Impaired Driving and Safety Belt Interventions Type of Request—New information collection requirement. OMB Clearance Number—None. Form Number—This collection of information uses no standard forms. PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 telephone surveys to evaluate interventions designed to increase safety belt use and reduce impaired driving. Sample sizes would range from 200 to 2000 depending on the geographic unit being surveyed (Nation, Region, State, Community) and the evaluation design for the intervention (e.g., number of analytic groups). Interview length would be 10 minutes. The surveys would collect information on attitudes, awareness, knowledge, and behavior related to the intervention. The surveys would follow a pre-post design where they are administered prior to the implementation of the intervention and after its conclusion. Interim survey waves may also be administered if the duration of the intervention permits. In conducting the proposed surveys, the interviewers would use computerassisted telephone interviewing to reduce interview length and minimize recording errors. A Spanish Language translation and bilingual interviewers would be used to minimize language barriers to participation. The proposed surveys would be anonymous and confidential. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was established 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. The heavy toll that impaired driving exacts on the Nation in fatalities, injuries, and economic costs is well documented. Strong documentation also exists to show that wearing a safety belt is one of the most important actions a person can take to prevent injury or fatality in the event of a crash, but a significant proportion of the population still does not wear them. The persistence of these traffic safety problems points to a continuing need for effective interventions to address impaired driving and non-use of safety belts. This in turn calls for strong evaluation efforts to identify what interventions are effective. This includes monitoring key interventions that have been shown to be effective in order to determine whether they are E:\FR\FM\05DEN1.SGM 05DEN1

Comments Invited

    You are invited to comment on the proposed TSO by submitting 
written data, views, or arguments to the above address. Comments 
received may be examined, both before and after the closing date, in 
room 815 at the above address, weekdays except federal holidays,

Background

    The proposed TSO-C178 provides a minimum operating standard for 
Trip-

Free Single Phase 115 VAC, 400 Hz circuit breakers, which provides an 
equivalent level of thermal protection to existing thermal circuit 
breakers, with the added ability of detection and reaction to arc fault 
conditions, thus diminishing damage to the wiring system caused by 
prolonged arcing events. The Arc Fault Circuit Breaker thereby 
diminishes damage to the aircraft wiring from the circuit breaker to 
the first serial load element, which reduces the potential of igniting 
surrounding material.
