Type of Request: Revision of a currently-approved information collection. Respondents: Motor carriers engaged in interstate commerce. Estimated Number of Respondents: 500,000. Estimated Number of Responses: 75,000. Estimated Time per Response: 18 minutes. Expiration Date: February 28, 2011. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 22,500 hours. Improved FMCSA accident data provides a more accurate estimate of the total responses to this information collection each year: 75,000. The Agency’s previous estimate was 106,800 responses. FMCSA retains its prior estimate that a motor carrier requires approximately 18 minutes, on average, to complete the tasks necessary to comply with § 390.15, i.e., collecting the required information about the accident, entering it into the Accident Register and maintaining it and other documents required by § 390.15. Therefore, the annual burden hours for all motor carriers is 22,500 hours (rounded) (75,000 responses x 18 minutes each divided by 60 minutes per hour). Background: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from OMB for each IC they conduct, sponsor, or require through regulations. FMCSA has determined that it needs to revise the currentlyapproved estimate for OMB Control No. 2126–0009, ‘‘Accident Recordkeeping Requirements.’’ The regulation underlying this ICR is 49 CFR 390.15, ‘‘Assistance in investigations and special studies.’’ It requires motor carriers to make all records and information pertaining to specified accidents available to an authorized representative or special agent of the FMCSA upon request, or as part of an inquiry.

The information for each accident must include, at a minimum, the following elements: Date of accident, city or town in which or most near where the accident occurred, the State in which the accident occurred, driver name, number of injuries, number of fatalities, and whether hazardous materials, other than fuel spilled from the fuel tanks of motor vehicles involved in the accident, were released. In addition, the register must contain copies of all accident reports required by State or other governmental entities or insurers. Motor carriers must maintain the required information in the Accident Register for 3 years after the date of the accident. This ICR strengthens FMCSA’s ability to assess motor carrier safety performance. These assessments enable FMCSA to direct its enforcement resources to the motor carriers with the weakest safety records, helping those carriers prevent accidents and reduce their severity. On February 8, 2008, OMB approved FMCSA’s estimate for this ICR of 32,040 annual burden hours and established an expiration date for this ICR of February 28, 2011.

Interstate motor carriers are required to maintain an Accident Register 
consisting of specified information about each accident involving their 
commercial motor vehicles. The information for each accident must 
include, at a minimum, the following elements: Date of accident, city 
or town in which or most near where the accident occurred, the State in 
which the accident occurred, driver name, number of injuries, number of 
fatalities, and whether hazardous materials, other than fuel spilled 
from the fuel tanks of motor vehicles involved in the accident, were 
released. In addition, the register must contain copies of all accident 
reports required by State or other governmental entities or insurers. 
Motor carriers must maintain the required information in the Accident 
Register for 3 years after the date of the accident.
    This ICR strengthens FMCSA's ability to assess motor carrier safety 
performance. These assessments enable FMCSA to direct its enforcement 
resources to the motor carriers with the weakest safety records, 
helping those carriers prevent accidents and reduce their severity.
    On February 8, 2008, OMB approved FMCSA's estimate for this ICR of 
32,040 annual burden hours and established an expiration date for this 
ICR of February 28, 2011. Today, FMCSA announces its plan to request 
that OMB approve revision of this estimate to 22,500 annual burden 
hours.
    Definitions: Each of these definitions can be found at 49 CFR 
390.5: ``Motor carrier'': Any person engaged in a business affecting 
interstate commerce who owns or leases a commercial motor vehicle in 
connection with that business, or assigns employees to operate it.
