Reports, Forms, and Record Keeping Requirements, 25034-25035 [2010-10627]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 25034 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 87 / Thursday, May 6, 2010 / Notices The agency believes that use of vehiclebased, alcohol detection technologies could help to significantly reduce the number of alcohol-impaired driving crashes, deaths and injuries by preventing drivers from driving while impaired by alcohol. As technology development progresses and decisions are being made about how to integrate such devices into the vehicle, NHTSA needs a better understanding of public preferences with respect to in-vehicle alcohol detection devices. Optimization of technology will depend on the extent to which public attitudes are taken into account during the development process. Thus NHTSA seeks input from drivers to: • Gauge public perceptions of advanced in-vehicle alcohol detection technology; • Guide the technology design; and • Guide a strategy for introduction of this technology. NHTSA believes that focus groups with licensed drivers are the appropriate method for obtaining information to address the above topics. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information)—Under this proposed effort, the Contractor will conduct a total of 24 focus groups in two stages. A set of three focus group meetings will be held in each of eight locations across the country; four sets of focus groups will occur in each phase of the research. NHTSA will select the locations to obtain responses in various regions of the country and to represent different State approaches to managing drunk driving. As indicated above, all participants will be licensed drivers. In each location, one focus group will be conducted with non-drinkers, one focus group will be conducted with social drinkers, and one focus group will be conducted with heavy episodic drinkers. The average number of participants will be eight per focus group, for a total of 192 focus group participants. Each participant will attend one focus group. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden Resulting from the Collection of Information—NHTSA estimates that the duration of each focus group will be one and one-half hours, or a total of 288 hours for the 192 focus group participants. The participants will not incur any reporting cost from the information collection. The participants also will not incur any record keeping burden or record keeping cost from the information collection. They will VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:53 May 05, 2010 Jkt 220001 receive a small stipend under standard procedures for focus groups. Authority: 44 U.S.C. Section 3506(c)(2)(A).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Focus Groups for Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Programs and Activities. Type of Request: New generic information collection request. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: May 31, 2013. PO 00000 Frm 00170 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) anticipates the need to periodically conduct focus group sessions to define its efforts to reduce traffic injuries and fatalities. Session participation would be voluntary and compensated with, on average, a $75 honorarium. Focus group topics will include: Strategic messaging (e.g., slogans or advertisement concepts concerning seat belt use, impaired driving, driver distraction or tire pressure monitoring), problem identification (e.g., discussions with high-risk groups on beliefs, attitudes, driving behaviors, or reactions to interventions and countermeasures), and resource development (e.g., testing materials designed to communicate essential information about traffic safety issues such as vehicle or equipment performance rating systems). The purpose of the generic clearance request is to obtain approval for NHTSA’s general approach to conducting focus group research. NHTSA will submit an individual Information Collection Request (ICR), detailing the specific nature and methodology of planned focus group sessions, to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) prior to any collection activity covered under this generic clearance. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was authorized by the Highway Safety Act of 1966 to carry out a Congressional mandate to reduce the mounting number of deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes on our Nation’s highways. In support of this mission, NHTSA anticipates the occasional need to conduct focus group sessions in order to develop and define effective interventions and countermeasures. NHTSA will use the findings from focus group sessions to help focus current programs, interventions and countermeasures in order to achieve the greatest benefit in decreasing crashes and resulting injuries and fatalities, and provide informational support to States, localities, and law enforcement agencies that will aid them in their efforts to reduce traffic crashes. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information)—Each year NHTSA anticipates conducting 19 Focus Group Studies. Likely respondents are licensed drivers 18 years of age and older who have not participated in a previous focus group session.

was authorized by the Highway Safety Act of 1966 to carry out a 
Congressional mandate to reduce the mounting number of deaths, injuries 
and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes on our 
Nation's highways. In support of this mission, NHTSA anticipates the 
occasional need to conduct focus group sessions in order to develop and 
define effective interventions and countermeasures.
    NHTSA will use the findings from focus group sessions to help focus 
current programs, interventions and countermeasures in order to achieve 
the greatest benefit in decreasing crashes and resulting injuries and 
fatalities, and provide informational support to States, localities, 
and law enforcement agencies that will aid them in their efforts to 
reduce traffic crashes.
    Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number,
