Moreover, crash fatalities rose in 2012. Thus significant effort will be needed just to preserve the gains that already have been made. Up-to-date information is essential to plot the direction of future activity that will achieve reductions in crash injuries and fatalities in the coming years. As part of its collection of information used to develop and implement effective countermeasures to improve highway traffic safety, NHTSA conducted its first MVOSS in 1994. The survey included questions related to seat belts, child safety seats, air bags, and Emergency Medical Services. It also contained small segments on alcohol use and on speeding. The survey has been repeated five times since then, with the survey instrument updated prior to each survey administration to incorporate emergent issues and items of increased interest. The most recent MVOSS was fielded during the first quarter of calendar year 2007. The proposed survey is the seventh MVOSS. The survey would collect data on topics included in the preceding surveys and would monitor changes over time in the use of occupant protection devices and in attitudes related to vehicle occupant safety. It is important that NHTSA monitor these changes so that the Agency can determine the effects of its efforts to promote the use of safety devices and to identify areas where its efforts should be targeted and where new strategies may be needed. As in earlier years, NHTSA proposes to make a small number of revisions to the survey instrument to address new information needs. If approved, the proposed survey would assist NHTSA in addressing motor vehicle occupant safety and in formulating programs and recommendations. The results of the proposed survey would be used to: (a) Identify areas to target current programs and activities to achieve the greatest benefit; (b) develop new programs and initiatives aimed at increasing the use of occupant safety devices by the public; and (c) provide informational support to States and localities in their traffic safety efforts. The findings would also be used directly by State and local highway safety and law enforcement agencies in the development and implementation of effective countermeasures to prevent injuries and fatalities to vehicle occupants. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information)—This proposed effort would involve cognitive testing of the questionnaires, usability VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:35 Jun 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 tests to identify any problems with selfadministration of the Web version of the questionnaires, a pilot test, and final survey administration. Businesses are ineligible for the sample and would not be interviewed. No more than one respondent would be selected per household. Each member of the sample would complete one interview. The cognitive testing would consist of one-on-one cognitive interviews with each of nine persons selected from the general public for each questionnaire, for a total of 18 cognitive interviews. All would be drivers 18 and older. All cognitive interviews using the child restraint use questionnaire would be conducted with parents of children under the age of 9. A maximum of 100 licensed drivers 18 and older would be recruited to participate in usability tests, with all tests of the child restraint use questionnaire conducted with parents of young children. For the pilot test, a maximum of 1,200 completed interviews with people age 16 and older would be obtained. For the final survey, 12,000 completed interviews with randomly selected members of the general public age 16 and older would be obtained, 6,000 per questionnaire. The respondent sample would be selected from all 50 States plus the District of Columbia. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden Resulting from the Collection of Information—NHTSA estimates that the respondents participating in the cognitive interviewing would average 1⁄2 hours to carry out that activity, for a total of 27 hours for the 18 cognitive interviews. NHTSA estimates that the respondents participating in the usability testing would average 1 hour in carrying out that activity. The number of usability testing respondents would not exceed 100, leading to a maximum burden of 100 hours. The projected 1,200 maximum completed interviews for the pilot test, with an average duration of 15 minutes, would produce a maximum burden of 300 hours. The 12,000 final survey interviews, with an average duration of 15 minutes, would produce a burden of 3,000 hours. The maximum reporting burden for the MVOSS would be 27 hours for the cognitive testing, 100 hours for the usability testing, 300 hours for the pilot test, and 3,000 hours for the final survey for a grand total of 3,427 hours. All interviewing would occur during a single calendar year. Thus the annual reporting burden would be the entire 3,427 hours. The respondents would not incur any reporting cost from the information collection. The respondents PO 00000 Frm 00124 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 also would not incur any record keeping burden or record keeping cost from the information collection. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A).

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 submission of responses.

Summary of the Collection of Information—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposes to conduct a survey of young drivers ages 16 through 20 concerning traffic safety issues affecting young VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:35 Jun 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 people in that age range. The survey would use Web as the primary response mode and mail as a second response mode. The sample would be drawn from driver license databases of States that choose to participate in the study. NHTSA would seek participation by eight States, two per Census Region. Contact with prospective respondents would be conducted through the mail. Young drivers would be asked to go to a designated Web site to take the survey. Follow up mailings would include as a second response option a paper version of the questionnaire that respondents can fill out and mail back. The survey would also provide the capability for the interview to be conducted by telephone if the prospective respondent requests that option. The questionnaire would cover topics such as general driving behavior, driver education and graduated driver licensing, parental oversight of driving, distraction and driving, drinking and driving, seat belt use, speeding and racing, crash experience, and traffic violations. The survey would first be pilot-tested in a single State. One purpose of the pilot test would be to determine if it is feasible to administer the full version of the questionnaire to all respondents, or whether the questionnaire would need to be split into two shorter versions. The average amount of time for respondents to complete the full version of the questionnaire is estimated to be 25 minutes. The average amount of time estimated to complete the shorter versions is 15 minutes. The pilot test would compare the response rates of groups receiving the different questionnaire versions. Combined with other test conditions being used to assess survey administration issues, there would be a total of 9 respondent groups whose response rates would be compared. The survey would be conducted primarily on-line, with the on-line technology serving to reduce length and minimize recording errors. Each respondent would be assigned a unique randomly generated PIN (Personal Identification Number) that must be used to access the questionnaire on the Web site. The personally identifiable information used to contact respondents would be held separately from the information provided by respondents to the survey so that no connection can be made between the two. No personally identifiable information would be collected during the interviews. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00125 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34155 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. Young drivers 16- to 20-years old are especially vulnerable to death and injury on our roadways, with traffic crashes being the leading cause of death for teenagers in America. It is essential that NHTSA be proactive in addressing young driver traffic safety. As a datadriven organization, this means collecting and analyzing quality data to identify the nature of young driver traffic safety problems, to guide development of intervention approaches, and to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions. While crash and fatality databases are invaluable sources of data applicable to these tasks, they do not tell the entire story. Attitudes, perceptions, knowledge, beliefs, preferences, and related factors often play a role in how the circumstances underlying a crash evolved. Situational and experiential factors also figure into the equation. Taking a comprehensive approach to preventing young driver crashes requires an understanding of this contextual information in order to fully assess the young driver crash problem and identify specific problems while also locating strategic points for intervention. This survey responds to those information needs. This survey will fill in gaps in the information that NHTSA has regarding young drivers, and will be used by the agency to help guide its strategic planning of activities to improve traffic safety of people in this age group. States that participate in the survey will be provided with a snapshot picture of attitudes, knowledge, and self-reported driving-related behavior of young people in their State that they can use in their own traffic safety planning activities, and that they can disseminate to their local jurisdictions. The aggregated data across States will provide a status report on where young drivers stand with regards to key traffic safety issues for use by traffic safety professionals and other concerned individuals in planning, developing, refining, and implementing measures to improve young driver safety.

Those steps would be completed by the time the project is ready to conduct the pilot test, in which 6,300 young people ages 16 through 20 listed in the driver license database of one State would be mailed a request to participate in the survey. For purposes of burden estimation this project will assume a response rate upper limit of 50%, or a maximum of 3,150 completed pilot test interviews. The final survey would be administered to young people ages 16 through 20 listed in the driver license database of one of the States participating in the survey. There would be eight participating States. The number of respondents would depend on results of the pilot test in addition to the response rate. For each of the eight States, 8,000 young drivers would be mailed the request to participate in the survey if the pilot test determines that it is feasible to administer the longer version of the questionnaire. An upper limit response rate of 50% equates to a maximum of 4,000 completed interviews per State, or 32,000 for the survey. But if the pilot test indicates that the questionnaire will need to be split into two shorter questionnaires, then the number of respondents would double to a maximum of 64,000 as 8,000 requests to participate in the survey would be mailed per questionnaire in each State. Businesses are ineligible for the sample and would not be interviewed. All respondents would be administered the survey one time only. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden Resulting From the Collection of Information—NHTSA estimates that the respondents participating in the usability testing would average 1 hour in carrying out that activity. The number of respondents would not exceed 100, producing a maximum burden of 100 hours. The projected 3,150 maximum completed interviews for the pilot test would be split among those receiving the full questionnaire (one-third of respondents) and those receiving the shortened versions (two-thirds of respondents, divided between those who get shortened Version A and those who get shortened Version B). The full version would require an average of 25 minutes for the 1,050 respondents for a burden of 437.5 hours. The shortened versions would require an average of 15 minutes for the 2,100 respondents for a VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:35 Jun 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 burden of 525 hours. The total burden for the pilot test would therefore be a maximum of 962.5 hours. If the pilot test indicates that administration of the full version of the questionnaire is feasible, then a maximum of 32,000 respondents would spend an average of 25 minutes completing the final survey, for a burden of 13,333.33 hours. If the pilot test instead indicates that the final survey will need to employ the shorter questionnaires, then a maximum of 64,000 respondents would spend an average of 15 minutes completing the survey, for a burden of 16,000 hours. The maximum reporting burden for the Implementation of a Youth Traffic Safety Survey would be 100 hours for the usability testing, 962.5 hours for the pilot test, and 16,000 hours for the final survey if two questionnaires are used for a grand total of 17,062.5 hours. All interviewing would occur during a single calendar year. Thus the annual reporting burden would be the entire 17,062.5 hours.

    In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks public comment on 
the following proposed collection of information:

Implementation of a Youth Traffic Safety Survey

    Type of Request--New information collection requirement.
    OMB Clearance Number--None.
    Form Number--NHTSA Form 1199.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval--3 years from date of 
approval.
    Summary of the Collection of Information--The National Highway 
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposes to conduct a survey of 
young drivers ages 16 through 20 concerning traffic safety issues 
affecting young people in that age range. The survey would use Web as 
the primary response mode and mail as a second response mode. The 
sample would be drawn from driver license databases of States that 
choose to participate in the study. NHTSA would seek participation by 
eight States, two per Census Region. Contact with prospective

asked to go to a designated Web site to take the survey. Follow up 
mailings would include as a second response option a paper version of 
the questionnaire that respondents can fill out and mail back. The 
survey would also provide the capability for the interview to be 
conducted by telephone if the prospective respondent requests that 
option. The questionnaire would cover topics such as general driving 
behavior, driver education and graduated driver licensing, parental 
oversight of driving, distraction and driving, drinking and driving, 
seat belt use, speeding and racing, crash experience, and traffic 
violations.
    The survey would first be pilot-tested in a single State. One 
purpose of the pilot test would be to determine if it is feasible to 
administer the full version of the questionnaire to all respondents, or 
whether the questionnaire would need to be split into two shorter 
versions. The average amount of time for respondents to complete the 
full version of the questionnaire is estimated to be 25 minutes. The 
average amount of time estimated to complete the shorter versions is 15 
minutes. The pilot test would compare the response rates of groups 
receiving the different questionnaire versions. Combined with other 
test conditions being used to assess survey administration issues, 
there would be a total of 9 respondent groups whose response rates 
would be compared.
    The survey would be conducted primarily on-line, with the on-line 
technology serving to reduce length and minimize recording errors. Each 
respondent would be assigned a unique randomly generated PIN (Personal

the Web site. The personally identifiable information used to contact 
respondents would be held separately from the information provided by 
respondents to the survey so that no connection can be made between the 
two. No personally identifiable information would be collected during 
the interviews.

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.
    Young drivers 16- to 20-years old are especially vulnerable to

seventeen-year-olds would not yet be included as not all steps that 
need to be carried out to allow participation by people this young 
would have been completed at this stage of the project. Those steps 
would be completed by the time the project is ready to conduct the 
pilot test, in which 6,300 young people ages 16 through 20 listed in 
the driver license database of one State would be mailed a request to 
participate in the survey. For purposes of burden estimation this 
project will assume a response rate upper limit of 50%, or a maximum of 
3,150 completed pilot test interviews.
    The final survey would be administered to young people ages 16 
through 20 listed in the driver license database of one of the States 
participating in the survey. There would be eight participating States. 
The number of respondents would depend on results of the pilot test in 
addition to the response rate. For each of the eight States, 8,000 
young drivers would be mailed the request to participate in the survey 
if the pilot test determines that it is feasible to administer the 
longer version of the questionnaire. An upper limit response rate of 
50% equates to a maximum of 4,000 completed interviews per State, or 
32,000 for the survey. But if the pilot test indicates that the 
questionnaire will need to be split into two shorter questionnaires, 
then the number of respondents would double to a maximum of 64,000 as 
8,000 requests to participate in the survey would be mailed per 
questionnaire in each State.
    Businesses are ineligible for the sample and would not be 
interviewed. All respondents would be administered the survey one time 
only.
    Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden 
Resulting From the Collection of Information--NHTSA estimates that the 
respondents participating in the usability testing would average 1 hour 
in carrying out that activity. The number of respondents would not 
exceed 100, producing a maximum burden of 100 hours.
    The projected 3,150 maximum completed interviews for the pilot test 
would be split among those receiving the full questionnaire (one-third 
of respondents) and those receiving the shortened versions (two-thirds 
of respondents, divided between those who get shortened Version A and 
those who get shortened Version B). The full version would require an 
average of 25 minutes for the 1,050 respondents for a burden of 437.5 
hours. The shortened versions would require an average of 15 minutes 
for the 2,100 respondents for a burden of 525 hours. The total burden 
for the pilot test would therefore be a maximum of 962.5 hours.
    If the pilot test indicates that administration of the full version 
of the questionnaire is feasible, then a maximum of 32,000 respondents 
would spend an average of 25 minutes completing the final survey, for a 
burden of 13,333.33 hours. If the pilot test instead indicates that the 
final survey will need to employ the shorter questionnaires, then a 
maximum of 64,000 respondents would spend an average of 15 minutes 
completing the survey, for a burden of 16,000 hours.
    The maximum reporting burden for the Implementation of a Youth 
Traffic Safety Survey would be 100 hours for the usability testing, 
962.5 hours for the pilot test, and 16,000 hours for the final survey 
if two questionnaires are used for a grand total of 17,062.5 hours.
    All interviewing would occur during a single calendar year. Thus 
the annual reporting burden would be the entire 17,062.5 hours. The 
respondents would not incur any reporting cost from the information 
collection. The respondents also would not incur any record keeping 
burden or record keeping cost from the information collection.
