SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Commercial Driver Individual Differences Study. OMB Control Number: 2126–XXXX. Type of Request: New information collection. Respondents: Commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers and fleet managers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 21,020. Estimated Time per Response: The estimated average time per responses are as follows: 1 hour, 5 minutes for paper and 1 hour for electronic Form MCSA–5863, ‘‘Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Survey,’’ submissions; 35 minutes for paper and 30 minutes for electronic Form MCSA–5864, ‘‘FollowUp Survey of Recent Life Experiences,’’ submissions; 75 minutes for paper and 70 minutes for electronic Driver Survey and Job Descriptive Index from the Follow-Up Survey submission; and 10 minutes for the Form MCSA–5865, ‘‘Fleet Managers Survey,’’ submissions. Expiration Date: N/A. This is a new information collection request. PO 00000 Frm 00161 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Frequency of Response: This information collection will be a single, nonrecurring event for 16,000 CMV driver participants and 20 fleet managers. For at least 5,000 CMV driver participants, the information collection will occur twice. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 9,536 hours. 8,822 hours for CMV driver participants: [16,800 CMV drivers completing paper Driver Survey × 65 minutes + 4,200 CMV drivers completing electronic Driver Survey × 1 hour + 4,000 drivers completing paper Follow-Up Survey × 35 minutes per driver/60 minutes + 1,000 drivers completing electronic Follow-Up Survey × 30 minutes per driver/60 minutes + 800 CMV drivers completing paper Driver Survey and Job Descriptive Index × 75 minutes per driver/60 minutes + 200 CMV drivers completing paper Driver Survey and Job Descriptive Inde× × 70 minutes per driver/60 minutes = 26,466 hours/3 years = 8,822 hours] + 714 hours for Carrier Operations: [20 participating carriers × 2 hours to learn about and agree to participation + 40 carrier managers completing IRB training × 2 hours + 20 Managers recruiting and handling data collection of 20,000 respondents × 83 hours + 20 Managers completing Fleet Manager Survey × 10 minutes + Carrier managers delivering monthly crash reports to VTTI (20 carriers × 36 months) × 30 minutes/60 minutes = 2,143/3 years = 714 hours]. 8,822 hours for CMV driver participants + 714 hours for Carriers Operations = 9,536 hours. Background: The purpose of this study is to identify, verify, quantify, and prioritize commercial driver risk factors. Primarily, these are personal factors such as demographic characteristics, medical conditions, personality traits, and performance capabilities. Risk factors may also include work environmental conditions, such as carrier operations type. The study will identify risk factors by linking the characteristics of individual drivers with their driving records, especially the presence or absence of DOT reportable crashes.
