SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Risk Factor Study.
    OMB Control No: 2126-xxxx.
    Type of Request: New Collection.
    Respondents: Commercial motor vehicle drivers and motor carriers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 700.
    Estimated Time per Response: The estimated average burden per 
response is 20 minutes for telephone interviews; 30 minutes for paper/
online questionnaires; 4 hours for in-person interviews, including 
psychological and perceptual testing, and medical examinations; and 30 
minutes for motor carriers to locate and deliver respondents' driving 
records to researchers.
    Frequency: This information will be a single, nonrecurring event.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,124 hours [100 participating 
carriers x 2 hours to provide information to researchers + 100 non-
response carriers x 30 minutes/60 minutes + 600 non-response CMV 
drivers x 5 minutes/60 minutes + 600 CMV driver telephone interviews x 
20 minutes/60 minutes + 600 CMV driver paper/online questionnaires x 30 
minutes/60 minutes + 72 in-person interviews, psychological and 
perceptual testing, and medical examinations x 4 hours + 20 carriers
