In 2008, 11,674 people died in excessive speed-related crashes. The cost of these crashes is approximately 40 billion dollars per year. Surveys of drivers’ attitudes toward speeding have demonstrated a strong correlation between drivers’ attitudes towards speeding and other driving behaviors and actual traffic outcomes. Models based on self-reported measures of intentions and attitudes are used to predict traffic behaviors and design interventions to reduce speeding and other hazardous traffic actions. Some of these models stress the importance of attitude, habits and the interaction of habit with intention. NHTSA proposes to conduct a 2010 National Survey of Speeding Attitudes and Behavior by telephone among a sample of 6,000 adults (age 16 and older). NHTSA’s information needs require a telephone survey of a national probability sample of drivers in the United States that will provide insight into why drivers speed and which methods of enforcement would discourage them from speeding. The questionnaire will contain items on the extent to which drivers speed, demographic and typological descriptions of speeders, locations and times when speeding is most frequent, attitudes and perceptions about speeding, reasons and motivations for speeding, knowledge of measures to deter speeding, attitudes towards measures to deter speeding, and correlates of speeding behavior. In conducting the proposed survey, 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 survey is the third in the series, which began in 1997. The 2010 survey will repeat many questions from previous surveys in order to monitor changes over time, and will also include new questions on emerging speed-related technologies. Affected Public: Randomly selected members of the general public age 16 and older, including those in landline telephone households as well as those who primarily or exclusive use a cellular phone.

[[Page 9475]]

    Abstract: Data from previous studies by the National Highway 
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has shown that 31 percent of all 
fatal crashes are directly traceable to excessive speed. In 2008, 
11,674 people died in excessive speed-related crashes. The cost of 
these crashes is approximately 40 billion dollars per year. Surveys of 
drivers' attitudes toward speeding have demonstrated a strong 
correlation between drivers' attitudes towards speeding and other 
driving behaviors and actual traffic outcomes. Models based on self-
reported measures of intentions and attitudes are used to predict 
traffic behaviors and design interventions to reduce speeding and other 
hazardous traffic actions. Some of these models stress the importance 
of attitude, habits and the interaction of habit with intention.
    NHTSA proposes to conduct a 2010 National Survey of Speeding 
Attitudes and Behavior by telephone among a sample of 6,000 adults (age 
16 and older). NHTSA's information needs require a telephone survey of 
a national probability sample of drivers in the United States that will 
provide insight into why drivers speed and which methods of enforcement 
would discourage them from speeding. The questionnaire will contain 
items on the extent to which drivers speed, demographic and typological 
descriptions of speeders, locations and times when speeding is most 
frequent, attitudes and perceptions about speeding, reasons and 
motivations for speeding, knowledge of measures to deter speeding, 
attitudes towards measures to deter speeding, and correlates of 
speeding behavior. In conducting the proposed survey, the interviewers 
would use computer-assisted 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 survey is the third in the series, which 
began in 1997. The 2010 survey will repeat many questions from previous 
surveys in order to monitor changes over time, and will also include 
new questions on emerging speed-related technologies.
    Affected Public: Randomly selected members of the general public 
age 16 and older, including those in landline telephone households as 
well as those who primarily or exclusive use a cellular phone. 
Participation by all respondents would be voluntary and anonymous.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,005 hours (15 pretest interviews 
averaging 20 minutes per interview, followed by 6,000 interviews 
administered to the final survey sample averaging 20 minutes per 
interview).

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 agency'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.
