(These telephone numbers are not tollfree.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104–13, Section 2, 109 Stat. 163 (1995) (codified as revised at 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public comment on information collection activities before OMB may approve paperwork packages. 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.5, 1320.8(d)(1), 1320.12. On April 21, 2010, FRA published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting comment VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:52 Jul 02, 2010 Jkt 220001 on ICRs that the agency was seeking OMB approval. 75 FR 20875. FRA received no comments after issuing this 60-day notice. Accordingly, DOT announces that these information collection activities have been reevaluated and certified under 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and forwarded to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12(c). Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b); 5 CFR 1320.12(d). Federal law requires OMB to approve or disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30 day notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507 (b)–(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes that the 30 day notice informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of publication to best ensure having their full effect. 5 CFR 1320.12(c); see also 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. The summaries below describe the nature of the information collection requirements (ICRs) and the expected burden. The revised requirements are being submitted for clearance by OMB as required by the PRA. Title: Filing of Dedicated Cars. OMB Control Number: 2130–0502. Type of Request: Extension without change of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Railroads. Abstract: Title 49, part 215 of the Code of Federal Regulations, prescribes certain conditions to be followed for the movement of freight cars that are not in compliance with this part. Dedicated service means the exclusive assignment of railroad cars to the transportation of freight between specified points under the following conditions: (1) The cars are operated primarily on track that is inside an industrial or other nonrailroad installation; and only occasionally over track of a railroad; (2) The cars are not operated at speeds of more than 15 miles per hour; and over track of a railroad—(A) for more than 30 miles in one direction; or (B) on a round trip for more than 60 miles; (3) The cars are not freely interchanged among railroads; (4) The words ‘‘Dedicated Service’’ are stenciled, or otherwise displayed, in clear legible letters on each side of the car body; and (5) The cars have been examined and found safe to operate in dedicated service. These PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 cars must be identified in a written report to FRA before they are assigned to dedicated service, and these reports must be filed with FRA 30 days before the cars operate in dedicated service. FRA uses the information collected under § 215.5(d) to determine the number of railroads affected, the number and type of cars involved, the commodities being carried, and the territorial and speed limits within which the cars will be operated. FRA reviews these reports to determine if the equipment is safe to operate and if the operation qualifies for dedicated service. The information collected indicates to FRA inspectors that the particular or ‘‘dedicated’’ car is in special service and that certain exceptions have been provided for regarding the application of this regulation spelled out in § 215.3. Cars not in compliance with § 215.5(d) will be cited for violations by FRA inspectors. The information collected is also used by railroads to provide identification and control so that dedicated cars remain in the prescribed service. Form Number(s): N/A. Annual Estimated Burden Hours: 4 hours. Title: Hours of Service Regulations. OMB Control Number: 2130–0005. Type of Request: Extension without change of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Railroads. Abstract: The collection of information is due to the railroad hours of service regulations set forth in 49 CFR part 228 which require railroads to collect the hours of duty for covered employees, and records of train movements. Railroads whose employees have exceeded maximum duty limitations must report the circumstances. Also, a railroad that has developed plans for construction or reconstruction of sleeping quarters (subpart C of 49 CFR part 228) must obtain approval of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) by filing a petition conforming to the requirements of Sections 228.101, 228.103, and 228.105. Form Number(s): FRA F 6180.3. Annual Estimated Burden Hours: 3,707,346 hours.

Dr. Atkins’ phone number is 202–366– 5597 and his e-mail address is randolph.atkins@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Motivations for Speeding. Type of Request: New information collection requirement. Abstract: Speeding is one of the primary factors leading to vehicle crashes. In 2008, 31% of all fatal crashes were speeding-related. The estimated economic cost to society for speedingrelated crashes is $40.4 billion per year. Driving at higher speeds reduces the ability of drivers to avoid obstacles or react to sudden changes in the roadway environment and increases crash severity. The pervasiveness of speeding behavior is reflected in a recent national survey that showed that approximately 75% of all drivers reported speeding in the past month. Since most drivers often do not see speeding as risky or dangerous behavior, it is imperative that NHTSA gain a better understanding of the motivations for speeding behaviors in order to develop and refine effective interventions and countermeasures. NHTSA proposes to conduct followup focus groups with 72 participants from an earlier on-road instrumented vehicle data collection conducted in Seattle, WA and College Station, TX. Focus group recruitment will be based on participants’ speeding patterns in the on-road data. The focus groups will contribute to a better understanding of speeding and speeders, a more accurate taxonomy of high/low speed driver subgroups, and a better understanding of the motives, attitudes and habits of these subgroups. The focus groups will explore speed choices and speeding behaviors and the factors that influence them, beliefs and attitudes toward speeding, reactions to and discussions about specific driving scenarios, and individual/group responses to various speeding countermeasures. The focus groups are expected to provide data relevant to descriptions of key motivations, attitudes, normative commitment to law, driving habits relevant to speeding and speeding countermeasures; descriptions of countermeasures with the greatest likely benefits; implementation issues and concerns associated with the countermeasures; and key advantages and disadvantages associated with various countermeasures. Affected Public: NHTSA plans to conduct six focus group sessions, three in Seattle, WA and three in College PO 00000 Frm 00100 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38863 Station, TX. Each focus group will consist of 8–12 participants and last approximately 80 minutes. Participants will be recruited by e-mail or telephone based on their driving behaviors in the earlier on-road phase of the study and their demographic characteristics. Participation by all respondents would be voluntary and confidential. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The total estimated annual burden is between 64 and 96 hours, depending on the number of participants (range 8–12) in each group. The respondents would not incur any reporting cost from the information collection. The respondents also would not incur any record keeping burden or record keeping cost from the information collection. 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. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). Jeff Michael, Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), 
Public Law 104-13, Section 2, 109 Stat. 163 (1995) (codified as revised 
at 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 
1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public

the PRA.
    Title: Filing of Dedicated Cars.
    OMB Control Number: 2130-0502.
    Type of Request: Extension without change of a currently approved 
collection.
    Affected Public: Railroads.
    Abstract: Title 49, part 215 of the Code of Federal Regulations, 
prescribes certain conditions to be followed for the movement of 
freight cars that are not in compliance with this part. Dedicated 
service means the exclusive assignment of railroad cars to the 
transportation of freight between specified points under the following 
conditions: (1) The cars are operated primarily on track that is inside 
an industrial or other non-railroad installation; and only occasionally 
over track of a railroad; (2) The cars are not operated at speeds of 
more than 15 miles per hour; and over track of a railroad--(A) for more 
than 30 miles in one direction; or (B) on a round trip for more than 60 
miles; (3) The cars are not freely interchanged among railroads; (4) 
The words ``Dedicated Service'' are stenciled, or otherwise displayed, 
in clear legible letters on each side of the car body; and (5) The cars 
have been examined and found safe to operate in dedicated service. 
These cars must be identified in a written report to FRA before they 
are assigned to dedicated service, and these reports must be filed with 
FRA 30 days before the cars operate in dedicated service. FRA uses the 
information collected under Sec.  215.5(d) to determine the number of 
railroads affected, the number and type of cars involved, the 
commodities being carried, and the territorial and speed limits within 
which the cars will be operated. FRA reviews these reports to determine 
if the equipment is safe to operate and if the operation qualifies for 
dedicated service. The information collected indicates to FRA 
inspectors that the particular or ``dedicated'' car is in special 
service and that certain exceptions have been provided for regarding 
the application of this regulation spelled out in Sec.  215.3. Cars not 
in compliance with Sec.  215.5(d) will be cited for violations by FRA 
inspectors. The information collected is also used by railroads to 
provide identification and control so that dedicated cars remain in the 
prescribed service.
