Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 119 / Thursday, June 20, 2013 / Notices drivers randomly selected from the 50 States and the District of Columbia. The survey would be composed of both a landline sample and a smaller cell phone sample selected from separate sampling frames. The drivers would have the developing in-vehicle alcohol sensing technology systems described to them, and asked a series of questions to obtain their reactions to the systems and their possible installation in new vehicles. In conducting the telephone interviews, the interviewers would use computer-assisted telephone interviewing to reduce interview length and minimize recording errors. Each driver in the sample would be interviewed a single time. No information would be collected that could be used to identify any respondent. NHTSA and ACTS will use the information from the proposed telephone survey in decision making regarding integration of the technology under investigation into a vehicle.
