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 E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 76614 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 236 / Wednesday, December 9, 2015 / Notices 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. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks public comment on the following proposed collection of information: Title: Evaluation of CommunityOriented Enforcement Demonstrations. Type of Request: New information collection requirement. OMB Clearance Number: None. Form Number: NHTSA Forms 1321, 1322, 1325. 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 public awareness surveys to help evaluate two traffic safety demonstration projects: Building Community Support for (1) Seat Belt Enforcement and (2) Impaired Driving Enforcement. If clearance is granted, the public awareness surveys would be administered in-person at Department of Motor Vehicles Offices pre-, mid-, and post-program in the two program locations and the two comparison locations. Over the total data collection effort, 9,600 people would be surveyed, 4,800 for each program. Estimated administration length would be approximately 5 minutes for the recruitment questionnaire and 10 minutes for the awareness survey questionnaire. For the recruitment questionnaire, information on licensure status and age would be collected. For the awareness survey questionnaire, information on attitudes, awareness, knowledge, and behavior would be collected. A Spanish-language translation of the awareness survey questionnaire would be used to minimize language barriers to participation. Additionally, participation in the proposed data collection would be anonymous; the questionnaires would not collect any personal information that would allow anyone to identify respondents. Participant names would not be collected. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Dec 08, 2015 Jkt 238001 was established by the Highway Safety Act of 1970 (23 U.S.C. 101) to carry out a Congressional mandate to reduce the mounting number of deaths, 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. In 2013, there were 10,076 fatalities in crashes involving a driver with a BAC of .08 or higher, which is 31% of total traffic fatalities in 2013.1 In the same year, 49% of passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes were unrestrained.2 These data point to the continued need for countermeasure development to decrease impaired driving and increase seat belt use. The purpose of the proposed data collection is to evaluate the effectiveness of two programs designed to increase seat belt use and reduce alcohol-impaired and unrestrained crashes, injuries, and fatalities. The programs are designed to accomplish these goals by using increased enforcement activity driven by law enforcement and community partnerships that maximize community support for impaired driving and seat belt enforcement. The proposed data collection would survey licensed drivers eighteen years and older visiting Department of Motor Vehicles Offices residing in the program and comparison locations to find out about public support for enforcement, awareness of enforcement activity, exposure to community partner activities, and selfreported impaired driving and seat belt use. The collected responses would inform how well the program created community support and influenced safe driving behavior. An essential part of the proposed data collection would be to compare pre-, mid-, and post-program measures to determine how the program contributed to changes in participant responses; therefore, multiple measurements would be required. The findings from this proposed information collection would support NHTSA, the States, localities, and law enforcement agencies by providing evidence as to the effectiveness of the community-oriented enforcement 1 National Center for Statistics and Analysis.

The findings could be used to refocus existing impaired driving and seat belt programs in order to enhance their effect or to guide the development of new programs. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information)—Under this proposed effort, the potential respondent universe would be licensed drivers eighteen years and older visiting Department of Motor Vehicles Offices residing in the locations where the impaired driving and seat belt programs would be conducted, and in the two selected comparison locations. As of the time of this Notice, the program and comparison locations have not been selected. Over the total data collection effort, a total of 9,600 licensed drivers eighteen years and older would be surveyed, including 4,800 for each program. Based upon precision estimates, the target sample for the awareness survey questionnaire is 4,800, with 2,400 in each location. However, because NHTSA has estimated a 50% response rate based upon previously conducted data collections of a similar nature, NHTSA is estimating that a total of 9,600 potential participants would need to be administered a recruitment questionnaire in order to find 4,800 eligible volunteers to completed the target number of awareness survey questionnaires. NHTSA estimates that each recruitment questionnaire would take 5 minutes and that each awareness survey questionnaire would take an additional 10 minutes to complete. Throughout the data collection, the privacy of all participants would be protected. Names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses would not be collected. The only information that would be collected would be participant zip code and demographic characteristics, such as age, gender, race, and ethnicity. Zip code would need to be collected to match the participant with either the program or comparison location to ensure that the measured change in public awareness could be associated with the program activity. Demographic information would need to be collected to conduct post-stratification weighting of the sample to U.S Census data to reduce sample bias. All collected data would be stored in restricted folders on secure password protected servers that are only accessible to research personnel with needed access to such information. In addition, all data collected from participants would be reported in aggregate, and individual participants E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 236 / Wednesday, December 9, 2015 / Notices would not be independently reported on in any reports resulting from this project. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden Resulting from the Collection of Information—NHTSA estimates that the total time for each respondent to participate in the data collection effort would either be 5 minutes or 15 minutes depending on eligibility and desire to participate. NHTSA estimates a 50% response rate, in which case 9,600 potential participants would to be administered the recruitment questionnaire in order to find 4,800 eligible volunteers to complete the awareness survey questionnaire. The total burden for the participants that would only complete the recruitment questionnaire would be 400 hours (i.e., 5 minutes × 4,800). The total burden for the participants that would complete the recruitment questionnaire and the awareness survey questionnaire would be 1,200 hours (i.e., 15 minutes × 4,800). The total burden for all participants would be 1,600 hours (i.e., 400 + 1,200). Because participants would be sampled from Department of Motor Vehicles Offices while they are waiting for service, participation would not include any participant reporting cost, record keeping cost, or record keeping burden. Comments are invited 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 information collection; (iii) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Authority: 44 U.S.C.

Ms. Ballard’s phone number is (202) 366–5222. Her fax number is (202) 493–2990. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a petition dated October 9, 2015, Jaguar Land Rover requested an exemption from the parts-marking requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard for the Jaguar XE vehicle line beginning with MY 2017. The petition requested an exemption from parts-marking pursuant to 49 CFR part 543, Exemption from Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, based on the installation of an antitheft device as standard equipment for the entire vehicle line. Under 49 CFR part 543.5(a), a manufacturer may petition NHTSA to grant an exemption for one vehicle line per model year. In its petition, Jaguar Land Rover provided a detailed description and diagram of the identity, design, and location of the components of the antitheft device for the Jaguar XE vehicle line. Jaguar Land Rover stated that the MY 2017 Jaguar XE vehicle line will be equipped with a passive, transponder based, electronic engine immobilizer antitheft device as standard SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00173 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76615 equipment. Key components of its antitheft device will include a power train control module (PCM), instrument cluster, body control module (BCM), remote frequency receiver (RFR), remote frequency actuator (RFA), immobilizer antenna unit (IAU), Smart Key, and door control units (DCU). Jaguar Land Rover stated that its antitheft device will also be installed with an audible and visual perimeter alarm system as standard equipment. If unauthorized entry is attempted by opening the vehicle’s hood, trunk or doors, the alarm will sound and the vehicle’s exterior lights will flash. Jaguar Land Rover also stated that the perimeter alarm system can be armed either with the Smart Key or programmed to be passively armed. Jaguar Land Rover’s submission is considered a complete petition as required by 49 CFR 543.7, in that it meets the general requirements contained in § 543.5 and the specific content requirements of § 543.6. The immobilizer device is automatically activated when the Smart Key is removed from the vehicle. Deactivation occurs once the driver approaches the vehicle by pulling on the driver’s door handle or using the Smart Key unlock button to unlock the doors. Jaguar Land Rover stated that the Smart Key is programmed and synchronized to the vehicle through the means of a unique identification key code and a randomly generated secret code that is unique to each vehicle. In addressing the specific content requirements of § 543.6, Jaguar Land Rover provided information on the reliability and durability of its proposed device. To ensure reliability and durability of the device, Jaguar Land Rover conducted tests based on its own specified standards. Jaguar Land Rover provided a detailed list of the tests conducted (i.e., temperature and humidity cycling, high and low temperature cycling, mechanical shock, random vibration, thermal stress/shock tests, material resistance tests, dry heat, dust and fluid ingress tests). Jaguar Land Rover stated that it believes that its device is reliable and durable because it has complied with specified requirements for each test. Jaguar Land Rover stated that reliability and durability of its device is further supported by equipping its vehicles with a key recognition sequence that has over a billion code combinations with encrypted data that are secure against duplication. Jaguar Land Rover stated that the coded data transfer between the modules that will be installed on its XE vehicles use a unique, secure identifier, a random number and a secure public algorithm.

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 
submission of responses.
    In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks public comment on 
the following proposed collection of information:
    Title: Evaluation of Community-Oriented Enforcement Demonstrations.
    Type of Request: New information collection requirement.
    OMB Clearance Number: None.
    Form Number: NHTSA Forms 1321, 1322, 1325.
    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 public 
awareness surveys to help evaluate two traffic safety demonstration 
projects: Building Community Support for (1) Seat Belt Enforcement and 
(2) Impaired Driving Enforcement. If clearance is granted, the public 
awareness surveys would be administered in-person at Department of 
Motor Vehicles Offices pre-, mid-, and post-program in the two program 
locations and the two comparison locations. Over the total data 
collection effort, 9,600 people would be surveyed, 4,800 for each 
program. Estimated administration length would be approximately 5 
minutes for the recruitment questionnaire and 10 minutes for the 
awareness survey questionnaire. For the recruitment questionnaire, 
information on licensure status and age would be collected. For the 
awareness survey questionnaire, information on attitudes, awareness, 
knowledge, and behavior would be collected.
    A Spanish-language translation of the awareness survey 
questionnaire would be used to minimize language barriers to 
participation. Additionally, participation in the proposed data 
collection would be anonymous; the questionnaires would not collect any 
personal information that would allow anyone to identify respondents. 
Participant names would not be collected.
    Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the 
Information--The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 
was established by the Highway Safety Act of 1970 (23 U.S.C. 101) to 
carry out a Congressional mandate to reduce the mounting number of 
deaths, 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.
    In 2013, there were 10,076 fatalities in crashes involving a driver 
with a BAC of .08 or higher, which is 31% of total traffic fatalities 
in 2013.\1\ In the same year, 49% of passenger vehicle occupants killed 
in crashes were unrestrained.\2\ These data point to the continued need 
for countermeasure development to decrease impaired driving and 
increase seat belt use. The purpose of the proposed data collection is 
to evaluate the effectiveness of two programs designed to increase seat 
belt use and reduce alcohol-impaired and unrestrained crashes, 
injuries, and fatalities. The programs are designed to accomplish these 
goals by using increased enforcement activity driven by law enforcement 
and community partnerships that maximize community support for impaired

    The findings from this proposed information collection would 
support NHTSA, the States, localities, and law enforcement agencies by 
providing evidence as to the effectiveness of the community-oriented 
enforcement approach under examination. The findings could be used to 
refocus existing impaired driving and seat belt programs in order to 
enhance their effect or to guide the development of new programs.
    Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number, 
and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information)--
Under this proposed effort, the potential respondent universe would be 
licensed drivers eighteen years and older visiting Department of Motor 
Vehicles Offices residing in the locations where the impaired driving 
and seat belt programs would be conducted, and in the two selected 
comparison locations. As of the time of this Notice, the program and 
comparison locations have not been selected. Over the total data 
collection effort, a total of 9,600 licensed drivers eighteen years and 
older would be surveyed, including 4,800 for each program. Based upon 
precision estimates, the target sample for the awareness survey 
questionnaire is 4,800, with 2,400 in each location. However, because 
NHTSA has estimated a 50% response rate based upon previously conducted 
data collections of a similar nature, NHTSA is estimating that a total 
of 9,600 potential participants would need to be administered a 
recruitment questionnaire in order to find 4,800 eligible volunteers to 
completed the target number of awareness survey questionnaires. NHTSA 
estimates that each recruitment questionnaire would take 5 minutes and 
that each awareness survey questionnaire would take an additional 10 
minutes to complete.
    Throughout the data collection, the privacy of all participants 
would be protected. Names, addresses, phone numbers, and email 
addresses would not be collected. The only information that would be 
collected would be participant zip code and demographic 
characteristics, such as age, gender, race, and ethnicity. Zip code 
would need to be collected to match the participant with either the 
program or comparison location to ensure that the measured change in 
public awareness could be associated with the program activity. 
Demographic information would need to be collected to conduct post-
stratification weighting of the sample to U.S Census data to reduce 
sample bias. All collected data would be stored in restricted folders 
on secure password protected servers that are only accessible to 
research personnel with needed access to such information. In addition, 
all data collected from participants would be reported in aggregate, 
and individual participants

[[Page 76615]]

would not be independently reported on in any reports resulting from 
this project.
    Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden 
Resulting from the Collection of Information--NHTSA estimates that the 
total time for each respondent to participate in the data collection 
effort would either be 5 minutes or 15 minutes depending on eligibility 
and desire to participate. NHTSA estimates a 50% response rate, in 
which case 9,600 potential participants would to be administered the 
recruitment questionnaire in order to find 4,800 eligible volunteers to 
complete the awareness survey questionnaire. The total burden for the 
participants that would only complete the recruitment questionnaire 
would be 400 hours (i.e., 5 minutes x 4,800). The total burden for the 
participants that would complete the recruitment questionnaire and the 
awareness survey questionnaire would be 1,200 hours (i.e., 15 minutes x 
4,800). The total burden for all participants would be 1,600 hours 
(i.e., 400 + 1,200). Because participants would be sampled from
