FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Julie Kang, Ph.D., Contracting Officer’s Technical Representative Task Order Manager, Office of Human-Vehicle Performance Research (NVS–331), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., Washington, DC 20590. Dr. Kang’s phone number is 202–366–7664. Her email address is julie.kang@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulations (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks public comment on the following proposed collection of information: Driver Monitoring of Inattention and Impairment Using Vehicle Equipment (Phase 2) Type of Request—New information collection requirement. OMB Clearance Number—None. Form Number—NHTSA Form 1157. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:01 Jan 15, 2013 Jkt 229001 Requested Expiration Date of Approval—Two years from date of approval. Summary of the Collection of Information—NHTSA proposes to collect information from the public as part of a multipart study to develop and evaluate vehicle-based algorithms to detect and mitigate impairment and inattention. Questions will be asked in conjunction with a pair of simulator experiments to determine eligibility, and to provide details about the individuals and their experiences in the simulator that are necessary to explain the simulator data. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) mission is to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce healthcare and other economic costs associated with motor vehicle crashes. In 2010, 899,000 police-reported crashes involved a distracted driver. This number accounts for 17 percent of the total number of police-reported crashes. Driver distraction is the diversion of attention from activities critical for safe driving to a competing activity. Examples of these tasks include talking on a cell phone, reaching for an object, or using a digital music player. NHTSA estimates that 100,000 police-reported crashes each year are the result of driver fatigue, but this estimate may be conservative. There are no tests to accurately determine fatigue and it is a difficult driver state to measure. In a continuing effort to reduce the adverse consequences of impaired and inattentive driving, NHTSA in conjunction with the National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) is undertaking research to develop and evaluate vehicle-based algorithms that will detect impaired driving, e.g. driving while intoxicated, distracted, or drowsy. The agency believes that use of vehiclebased, detection technologies could help to significantly reduce the number of impaired driving crashes by alerting drivers to stop driving or disengage with distracting activities. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information)—Under this proposed effort, the Contractor will contact approximately 168 individuals for the phone-screening portion of the study. The screening is roughly 10 minutes in length. It is estimated that 100 of these individuals will be enrolled into the study to obtain the 72 completed data sets. The individuals contacted are persons in Eastern Iowa who have volunteered to take part in a PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3497 driving simulation study. Businesses are ineligible for the sample and will not be contacted. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden Resulting From the Collection of Information—It is estimated that the total respondent burden will be 203 hours. There are two experiments: Track A and Track B. Individuals in Track A will have a burden of 30–45 minutes and individuals in Track B will have a burden of 150–180 minutes. Respondents who only complete the phone screening will have a burden of 10 minutes. The respondents will not incur any reporting cost from the information collection. The respondents also will not incur any recordkeeping burden or recordkeeping cost from the information collection. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A).

App. 2, § 10(a)(2), that a meeting will be held at the Hay-Adams Hotel, 16th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW.,Washington, DC, on February 5, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. of the following debt management advisory committee: Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee of The Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association. The agenda for the meeting provides for a charge by the Secretary of the Treasury or his designate that the Committee discuss particular issues and conduct a working session. Following the working session, the Committee will present a written report of its recommendations. The meeting will be closed to the public, pursuant to 5 U.S.C.

This notice shall constitute my determination, pursuant to the authority placed in heads of agencies by 5 U.S.C. App. 2, § 10(d) and vested in me by Treasury Department Order No. 101–05, that the meeting will consist of discussions and debates of the issues presented to the Committee by the Secretary of the Treasury and the making of recommendations of the Committee to the Secretary, pursuant to Public Law 103–202, § 202(c)(1)(B). Thus, this information is exempt from disclosure under that provision and 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(3)(B). In addition, the meeting is concerned with information that is exempt from disclosure under 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(A). The public interest requires that such meetings be closed to the public because the Treasury Department requires frank and full advice from representatives of the financial community prior to making its final decisions on major financing operations. Historically, this advice has been offered by debt management advisory committees established by the several major segments of the financial community. When so utilized, such a committee is recognized to be an advisory committee under 5 U.S.C. App. 2, § 3. Although the Treasury’s final announcement of financing plans may not reflect the recommendations provided in reports of the Committee, premature disclosure of the Committee’s deliberations and reports would be likely to lead to significant financial speculation in the securities market. Thus, this meeting falls within the exemption covered by 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(A). Treasury staff will provide a technical briefing to the press on the day before the Committee meeting, following the release of a statement of economic conditions and financing estimates. This briefing will give the press an opportunity to ask questions about financing projections. The day after the Committee meeting, Treasury will release the minutes of the meeting, any charts that were discussed at the meeting, and the Committee’s report to the Secretary. The Office of Debt Management is responsible for maintaining records of debt management advisory committee meetings and for providing annual reports setting forth a summary of Committee activities and such other matters as may be informative to the public consistent with the policy of 5 U.S.C. 552(b).
