SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP). Type of request: New information collection requirement. Background: The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), 23 U.S.C. 148, established the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as a core Federal program. A Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is a major and mandatory component of the HSIP. A SHSP is a statewide-coordinated, datadriven, multi-year comprehensive safety plan coordinated by a State Department of Transportation. The purpose of the SHSP is to identify the State’s key safety needs and guide investment decisions to achieve significant reductions in VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:31 May 17, 2011 Jkt 223001 highway fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. The SHSP is developed by each State in a cooperative process with local, State, Federal, and private sector engineering, education, enforcement, and emergency medical service stakeholders. The SHSP process allows highway safety programs in the State to work together in an effort to align and leverage resources. This coordination also allows State agencies to integrate multiple strategic safety plans, including the Highway Safety Plan (HSP) and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Plan (CVSP). FHWA supports development of SHSPs at the State level by (1) Providing technical assistance; (2) conducting education and outreach; (3) performing and disseminating research and analysis; (4) developing and distributing technical tools, and (5) drafting and disseminating policy and guidance. The requested information collection, in the form of an on-line survey tool, will be used to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of these activities in supporting the development and implementation of SHSPs. Survey respondents will be asked to provide information about their use and opinion of FHWA-supplied products and services to support SHSP development and implementation as well as their perspectives on the effectiveness of the SHSP program overall. Certain survey respondents will also be asked to provide feedback on State-level coordination between the SHSP, the HSP and the CVSP annual safety plans required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), respectively. The information will also allow FHWA to assess the needs of State DOTs for additional products and services in support of the SHSP development, update and implementation processes, with the ultimate goal of improving highway safety outcomes across the nation. Respondents: We estimate that 153 State-level leads responsible for development and implementation of the SHSP, the HSP and the CVSP. In some cases, an individual may be responsible for more than one plan. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 30 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The total burden for this collection would be approximately 76.5 hours. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection of PO 00000 Frm 00120 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28845 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.
