The following data will be collected: demographic information on parents/caregivers and their children; parent/caregiver understanding of the CPS messages shown to them; and parent/caregiver perception of safest behavior to follow for properly restraining their children depending on their children’s age. At the conclusion of the survey, participants will receive information on child passenger safety and specific information regarding the locations of inspection stations and car seat check events that are available in the area. An incentive will also be given to all participants. The participants would respond to the proposed surveys using touch-screen computers to reduce survey length and minimize recording errors. No personally identifiable information will be collected during the surveys. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information—NHTSA was established to reduce the number of deaths, injuries, and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes on the Nation’s highways. As part of this statutory mandate, NHTSA is authorized to conduct research as a foundation for the development of motor vehicle standards and traffic safety programs. In support of this mission, NHTSA proposes to collect information from parents and caregivers on their understanding and perceptions of child passenger safety messages. The response information is necessary to determine the most effective CPS messages that would influence parents and caregivers to seek the most appropriate restraint systems for their children (less than 13 years of age). In addition, NHTSA will publish the findings of this research study to provide information to States, localities, and other interested organizations in support of their efforts to reduce and prevent injuries among child occupants. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information)—NHTSA proposes to conduct computergenerated response tests with 600 parents and caregivers of young children less than 13 years of age. Data collection is expected to take place over a 3 month period in the Summer and Fall of 2012. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden Resulting from the Collection of Information—Each of the 600 participant testing sessions will last approximately 75 minutes including the initial introduction and instruction. Data collection is expected to take place VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:42 Dec 15, 2011 Jkt 226001 over a three-month period during 2012. Therefore, the estimated annual burden is 750 hours. The participants would not incur any reporting cost from the information collection. The participants also would not incur any record keeping burden or record keeping cost from the information collection. Authority: 44 U.S.C. Section 3506(c)(2)(A).
