SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: The Next Generation of Travel Focus Groups. Background: The awareness and use of new technologies, communication and travel options, as well as social norms will influence transportation needs of the future. As Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) considers the future outlook of an improved National Highway System, the transportation behaviors, perspectives and needs of the younger traveler cohort is a topic of study the agency is pursuing to better evaluate future planning and policy options. The Next Generation of Travel study, being performed through the agency’s Office of Policy Transportation Studies division, will be studying existing and future travel patterns, as well as how new vehicle and transportation-related technologies affect generations and the future of personal travel. Certain generational implications on transportation that FHWA will be exploring include the following: mode choice, trip type and rates, travel time VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:05 Aug 18, 2010 Jkt 220001 and distances, vehicle ownership and characteristics, vehicle occupancy, vehicle availability, travel costs, personal income, worker status, home and work location, life cycle, internet usage and telecommuting. FHWA will be conducting a series of focus groups with individuals in the U.S. to gain additional understanding into the travel activities, choices and views of transportation by the traveling public. The focus groups will provide important information about the next several generations of travelers, playing a critical role in informing on the outcomes of the data analysis, the accuracy of the traveler profiles, and other new or emerging norms and perspectives not identified in previous work. The information collected will also be used to identify new and emerging travel behavior, perspectives and social norms not covered through the statistical analysis. This is the first time that FHWA will be conducting a study on this topic. Respondents: Approximately 20 focus groups made up of 8–10 participants each from U.S. households will be held in different regions across the country. The focus groups will include participants from all the age cohorts; however, at least half of the focus groups will be made up of participants 16–29 years of age. The estimated total number of respondents is 200. Frequency: The series of focus groups will be conducted once. No individual will participate in the focus groups more than once. The focus groups will be conducted during calendar year 2011. Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated average burden per respondent is 60 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The estimated total annual burden for the focus group series is 200 hours. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the U.S. DOT’s performance, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the U.S. DOT’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Title: Criminal Penalty Safe Harbor Provision. OMB Control Number: 2127–0609. Frequency: We believe that there will be very few criminal prosecutions under 49 U.S.C. 30170, given the lack of prosecutions under the statute to date. Accordingly, it is not likely to be a substantial motivating force for a submission of a corrected report in E:\FR\FM\19AUN1.SGM 19AUN1 emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES 51330 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 160 / Thursday, August 19, 2010 / Notices response to an agency request for information. See Summary of the Collection of Information below. Based on our experience to date, we estimate that no more than one (1) person per year would be subject to this collection of information, and we do not anticipate receiving more than one report a year from any particular person. Affected Public: This collection of information would apply to any person who seeks a ‘‘safe harbor’’ from potential criminal liability under 49 U.S.C. 30170. Thus, the collection of information could apply to the manufacturers, any officers or employees thereof, and other persons who respond or have a duty to respond to an information provision requirement pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30166 or a regulation, requirement, request or order issued thereunder. Abstract: NHTSA has published a final rule related to ‘‘reasonable time’’ and sufficient manner of ‘‘correction,’’ as they apply to the safe harbor from criminal penalties, as required by Section 5 of the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act (Pub. L. 106–414), which was enacted on November 1, 2000. 65 FR 38380 (July 24, 2001). Estimated Annual Burden: Using the above estimate of one (1) affected person a year, with an estimated two (2) hours of preparation to collect and provide the information, at an assumed rate of $26.70 an hour, the annual, estimated cost of collecting and preparing the information necessary for one complete ‘‘safe harbor’’ correction is $53.40. Adding in a postage cost of $0.44 (one report at a cost of 44 cents to mail each one), we estimate that it will cost $53.84 a year for persons to prepare and submit the information necessary to satisfy the safe harbor provision of 49 U.S.C. 30170. Since nothing in this rule would require those persons who submit reports pursuant to this rule to keep copies of any records or reports submitted to us, the cost imposed to keep records would be zero hours and zero costs. Number of Respondents: We estimate that there will be no more than one per year. Summary of the Collection of Information: Any person seeking protection from criminal liability under 49 U.S.C. 30170 related to an improper report or failure to report pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30166, or a regulation, requirement, request or order issued thereunder, is and will be required to report the following information to NHTSA: (1) Each previous improper item of information or document and VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:05 Aug 18, 2010 Jkt 220001 each failure to report that was required under 49 U.S.C. 30166, or a regulation, requirement, request or order issued thereunder, (2) the specific predicate under which each improper or omitted report should have been provided, and (3) the complete and correct reports, including all information that was improperly submitted or that should have been submitted and all relevant documents that were not previously submitted to NHTSA or, if the person cannot provide this, then a full detailed description of that information or of the content of those documents and the reason why the individual cannot provide them to NHTSA. ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725–17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer. Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    Title: Criminal Penalty Safe Harbor Provision.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0609.
    Frequency: We believe that there will be very few criminal 
prosecutions under 49 U.S.C. 30170, given the lack of prosecutions 
under the statute to date. Accordingly, it is not likely to be a 
substantial motivating force for a submission of a corrected report in

response to an agency request for information. See Summary of the 
Collection of Information below. Based on our experience to date, we 
estimate that no more than one (1) person per year would be subject to 
this collection of information, and we do not anticipate receiving more 
than one report a year from any particular person.
    Affected Public: This collection of information would apply to any 
person who seeks a ``safe harbor'' from potential criminal liability 
under 49 U.S.C. 30170. Thus, the collection of information could apply 
to the manufacturers, any officers or employees thereof, and other 
persons who respond or have a duty to respond to an information 
provision requirement pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30166 or a regulation, 
requirement, request or order issued thereunder.
    Abstract: NHTSA has published a final rule related to ``reasonable 
time'' and sufficient manner of ``correction,'' as they apply to the 
safe harbor from criminal penalties, as required by Section 5 of the 
Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation 
(TREAD) Act (Pub. L. 106-414), which was enacted on November 1, 2000. 
65 FR 38380 (July 24, 2001).
    Estimated Annual Burden: Using the above estimate of one (1) 
affected person a year, with an estimated two (2) hours of preparation 
to collect and provide the information, at an assumed rate of $26.70 an 
hour, the annual, estimated cost of collecting and preparing the 
information necessary for one complete ``safe harbor'' correction is 
$53.40. Adding in a postage cost of $0.44 (one report at a cost of 44 
cents to mail each one), we estimate that it will cost $53.84 a year 
for persons to prepare and submit the information necessary to satisfy 
the safe harbor provision of 49 U.S.C. 30170.
    Since nothing in this rule would require those persons who submit 
reports pursuant to this rule to keep copies of any records or reports 
submitted to us, the cost imposed to keep records would be zero hours 
and zero costs.
    Number of Respondents: We estimate that there will be no more than 
one per year.
    Summary of the Collection of Information: Any person seeking 
protection from criminal liability under 49 U.S.C. 30170 related to an 
improper report or failure to report pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30166, or a 
regulation, requirement, request or order issued thereunder, is and 
will be required to report the following information to NHTSA: (1) Each 
previous improper item of information or document and each failure to 
report that was required under 49 U.S.C. 30166, or a regulation, 
requirement, request or order issued thereunder, (2) the specific 
predicate under which each improper or omitted report should have been 
provided, and (3) the complete and correct reports, including all 
information that was improperly submitted or that should have been 
submitted and all relevant documents that were not previously submitted 
to NHTSA or, if the person cannot provide this, then a full detailed 
description of that information or of the content of those documents 
and the reason why the individual cannot provide them to NHTSA.

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725-17th 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.
    Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of
