SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 2127–New. Title: Older Driver Compliance with Licensing Restrictions. Form No.: NHTSA Form 1186. Type of Review: Regular. Respondents: Drivers age 70 and older who have responded to a solicitation for participation in a study of licensing restrictions and provided a phone number for contact. Estimated Number of Respondents: A maximum of 240 respondents to a solicitation who have provided a phone number to call. Estimated Time Per Response: The average amount of time to respond to the questions is estimated at 10 minutes for each telephone conversation with a respondent. Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 40 hours. Frequency of Collection: The questions will be presented a single time. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Abstract Some States impose restrictions on drivers who have impairments that may affect safety, for example, limiting a driver whose vision is declining to daytime driving only. However, it is unclear whether drivers comply with those restrictions. This study will explore this issue by documenting driving habits of drivers with restrictions imposed by the licensing authority, drivers with restrictions recommended by a driving rehabilitation specialist but without State-imposed restrictions, and a control group of unrestricted drivers of similar age. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposes to collect information from older adult licensed drivers about their driver license status and driving habits. Drivers will volunteer for the study by responding to a mailed or individuallydelivered solicitation. Researchers will ask drivers seven questions to determine eligibility to participate in the study, then describe the proposed study to respondents who qualify. Each driver who meets study inclusion criteria will then be asked if he or she wishes to participate. If yes, a project assistant will ask for a description of the car in order to identify it and install a data collection system that will collect all remaining data necessary for the study. In sum, the proposed questions will allow research staff to ensure that prospective participants meet study inclusion criteria and facilitate installing data collection instruments in VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:10 Sep 04, 2013 Jkt 229001 the participants’ vehicles. Findings will provide information about the extent to which drivers comply with license restrictions and with certified driving rehabilitation specialist recommendations, and whether such restrictions lead to reduced driving exposure. NHTSA will provide the findings to States for their use in developing restricted licensing practices aimed at reducing injuries and loss of life on the highway.

Title: Matching Countermeasures to Driver Types and Speeding Behaviors. Form No.: NHTSA 1198. Type of Review: Regular. Respondents: The survey respondents will be a random sample of drivers currently licensed and living in Idaho. The sample will be stratified by age, gender, and numbers of citations for speeding in the previous three years. Estimated Number of Respondents: An estimated sample size of 3200 drivers is projected for the survey mailing with a projected response rate of 50% (1600 drivers). Estimated Time per Response: The average amount of time for each respondent to complete the survey is estimated at 25 minutes. This includes any time needed to retrieve information. Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 444.6 hours. Frequency of Collection: The survey will be administered a single time. Abstract: In this study, NHTSA will be conducting a survey of a random sample of licensed drivers in the State of Idaho, stratified by age, gender and number of speeding convictions, in order to further explore typologies of driver speeding types developed in our recent Motivations for Speeding project and our 2011 National Survey of Speeding Attitudes and Behavior with a focus on finding appropriate countermeasures for various speeder types. This project will collect DATES: E:\FR\FM\05SEN1.SGM 05SEN1 ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 172 / Thursday, September 5, 2013 / Notices information on the attitudes and experiences of the drivers surveyed with regard to speeding countermeasures as well as actual driving records and match countermeasures with driver types. One objective of this project is to further examine the driver speeding typologies from the two previous studies. Each of the typologies provides a different way of defining speeder types. The four speeder types from the Motivations for Speeding project are based on the actual driving behaviors of a small sample of volunteer drivers. The three speeder types from the 2011 national phone survey are based on selfreports from a nationally representative sample of drivers. This project will compare these two ways of defining types of drivers with regard to their speeding behavior using driver records and the results of a mail survey of a representative sample of fully-licensed drivers and examine the utility of each way of defining types of speeders. A second objective of this project is the exploration of appropriate speeding countermeasures for various driver speeding types and roadways. This includes examining various countermeasures applied to speeding, such as traditional law enforcement, invehicle technologies, and driver education. This project will collect information on the attitudes and experiences of the drivers surveyed with regard to speeding countermeasures and match countermeasures with driver types from the two speeding typologies. Based on the analysis of this matching, recommendations for the most appropriate speeding countermeasures for various driver types will be produced. The third objective of this project is to match actual driver records with individual survey responses in order to compare patterns of actual driving violations with speeding types and other responses, and to validate selfreport information found in the survey. The driver records data will also be used to conduct a non-response bias analysis for the survey.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Notice provides NHTSA’s finding that a waiver of the Buy America requirements is appropriate for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) to purchase Can-Am Spyder model motorcycles (Spyders) using grant funds, authorized under 23 U.S.C. 402 (Section 402). See 23 U.S.C. 313. Section 2010 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy of Users (SAFETEA–LU) authorized NHTSA to award grant funds to States that implement programs to reduce the number of crashes involving motorcyclists.

C, Title I, § 31109(g), 126 Stat. 757 (2012), recodified as amended at 23 U.S.C. 405(f)). Awarded funds must be used for the purpose of implementing and improving motorcyclist safety training and awareness programs, which includes, among other things, the procurement of practice motorcycles. Id. The Buy America Act provides that NHTSA ‘‘shall not obligate any funds authorized to be appropriated to carry out the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982 (96 Stat. 2097) or Title 23 and administered by the Department of Transportation, unless steel, iron, and manufactured products used in such project are produced in the United States.’’ 23 U.S.C. 313.

speeding typologies from the two previous studies. Each of the 
typologies provides a different way of defining speeder types. The four 
speeder types from the Motivations for Speeding project are based on

speeders.
    A second objective of this project is the exploration of 
appropriate speeding countermeasures for various driver speeding types 
and roadways. This includes examining various countermeasures applied 
to speeding, such as traditional law enforcement, in-vehicle
