One research project will consist of two (2) focus groups in three (3) cities. Each group will have eight (8) participants and will last two (2) hours for a total of 96 participant hours. For the second research project in this phase, NHTSA will conduct on-site interviews at various tire retailers.

Therefore, the agency estimates that the cost associated with the burden hours is $1,706.65 ($15.95 per hour × 107 burden hours).

    Abstract: The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), 
enacted in December 2007, included a requirement that the National 
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) develop a national tire 
fuel efficiency program to educate consumers about the effect of tires 
on automobile fuel efficiency, safety and durability. A critical step 
in developing the consumer information program is to conduct proper 
market research to understand consumers' knowledge of tire maintenance 
and performance, understand the tire purchase process from both the 
consumer and retailer's perspectives, evaluate comprehension of 
ratings, exploring the clarity, meaningfulness and the likely resulting 
behaviors, and evaluating the creative and the channels for 
communication. NHTSA proposes a multi-phased research project to gather 
the data and apply analyses and results from the project to develop the 
consumer information program.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 107.
    Number of Respondents: 73.
    NHTSA will conduct two research phases. For the first phase, which 
this notice addresses, NHTSA will conduct two types of qualitative 
research. One research project will consist of two (2) focus groups in 
three (3) cities. Each group will have eight (8) participants and will 
last two (2) hours for a total of 96 participant hours. For the second 
research project in this phase, NHTSA will conduct on-site interviews 
at various tire retailers. NHTSA anticipates 25 respondents with each 
interview taking 25 minutes for a total of approximately 11 participant 
hours. The results of this research phase, as well as comments received 
to a separate notice, that will be published soon, will be used to 
finalize the content of an online survey NHTSA will conduct in the 
second research phase.
    The estimated annual burden hour for the first phase of research is 
107 hours. Based on the Bureau of Labor and Statistics' median hourly 
wage (all occupations) in the May 2009 National Occupational Employment 
and Wage Estimates, NHTSA estimates that it will take an average of 
$15.95 per hour for professional and clerical staff to gather data, 
distribute and print material. Therefore, the agency estimates that the 
cost associated with the burden hours is $1,706.65 ($15.95 per hour x 
107 burden hours).
    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.
