Waiver Request for Aquaculture Support Operations for the 2017 Calendar Year: SADIE JANE, 29146-29147 [2017-13413]

Download as PDF 29146 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 122 / Tuesday, June 27, 2017 / Notices Agency heard from many drivers that they would like some regulatory flexibility to be able to sleep when they get tired or as a countermeasure to traffic congestion (i.e., an exemption from the requirement for consolidated sleeper berth time). FMCSA has reviewed the literature and conducted its own laboratory studies on the subject. The majority of sleep studies to date demonstrate that well-timed split sleep has either a positive or no effect on subsequent neurobehavioral performance. To determine whether split sleeper berth time affects driver safety performance and fatigue levels, FMCSA is introducing a pilot program to allow temporary regulatory relief from 49 CFR 395.1(g)(1) (the sleeper berth provision) for a limited number of commercial drivers who have valid commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs) and who regularly use sleeper berths. II. Abstract of Pilot Program mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES The Flexible Sleeper Berth Pilot Program requires that participating drivers be provided relief from Part 395 concerning consolidated sleeper berth time requirements. Participating drivers will be asked if they have completed the Driver Education Module of the North American Fatigue Management Program (NAFMP) prior to study enrollment. If drivers have not completed the program, they will be given information on the program and encouraged, but not required, to complete these modules prior to participation in the study. During the pilot program, participating drivers will have the option to split their sleeper berth time, within parameters specified by FMCSA (i.e., participants will have exemption from the requirement for consolidated sleeper berth time). Driver metrics will be collected for the duration of the study, as discussed in Section III of this notice. Upon completion of the program, participants’ safety performance and fatigue levels will be analyzed, according to provision use, using a ‘‘within-subject and between-subject’’ study design. In this analysis, drivers will be compared among themselves and against other participating drivers. This pilot program seeks to produce statistically reliable evidence of the relationship between the degree of HOS flexibility and safety outcomes. III. Data Collection Plan Details of the data collection plan for this pilot program are subject to change based on comments to the docket and further review by analysts. Participating drivers will drive an instrumented vehicle for up to 3 consecutive months. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:33 Jun 26, 2017 Jkt 241001 At a minimum, FMCSA will gather the following data during the study: • Electronic logging device (ELD) data, to evaluate duty hours and timing, driving hours and timing, rest breaks, off-duty time, and restart breaks. • Onboard monitoring system (OBMS) data, to evaluate driving behaviors, safety-critical events (or SCEs, which include crashes, nearcrashes, and other safety-related events), reaction time, fatigue, lane deviations, and traffic density, road curvature, and speed variability. • Roadside violation data (from carriers and drivers), including vehicle, duty status, hazardous materials, and cargo-related violations (contingent upon inspections). • Wrist actigraphy data,2 to evaluate total sleep time, time of day sleep was taken, sleep latency, and intermittent wakefulness. • Psychomotor Vigilance Test (PVT) 3 data, to evaluate drivers’ behavioral alertness based on reaction times. • Subjective sleepiness ratings, using the Karolinska Sleepiness Scale (KSS),4 to measure drivers’ perceptions of their fatigue levels. • Sleep logs, in which drivers will document when they are going to sleep, when they wake up, and whether they are using the sleeper berth. For splitsleep days, drivers will record how and why they chose to split their sleep. Other information that may be needed, such as vehicle miles traveled (VMT), will also be collected through the participating carrier. Every effort will be made to reduce the burden on the carrier in collecting and reporting this data. time burden required to respond to the IC requirements, such as the time required to complete a particular form. The Agency submits its IC analysis and burden estimate to OMB as a formal ICR; the Agency cannot conduct the information collection until OMB approves the ICR. V. Request for Public Comments FMCSA asks for comment on the IC requirements of this study. Comments can be submitted to the docket as outlined under ADDRESSES at the beginning of this notice. You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: 1. Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the performance of FMCSA’s functions. 2. The accuracy of the estimated burden. 3. Ways for FMCSA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information. 4. Ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information. 5. Whether the data collection efforts proposed for carriers and drivers are burdensome enough to discourage their participation. 6. How data collection efforts should differ for team drivers.

Paperwork Reduction Act DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (the PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520) prohibits agencies from conducting information collection (IC) activities until they analyze the need for the collection of information and how the collected data will be managed. Agencies must also analyze whether technology could be used to reduce the burden imposed on those providing the data. The Agency must estimate the Maritime Administration 2 Participants will wear wrist actigraphy devices (similar to commercially available smart fitness watches) throughout their time in the study. Actigraphy is a minimally obtrusive, validated approach to assessing sleep/wake patterns. 3 For this study, drivers will be required to complete daily iterations of a brief PVT, a 3-minute behavioral alertness test which measures drivers’ alertness levels by timing their reactions to visual stimuli. 4 The KSS is a 9-point Likert-type scale ranging from ‘‘extremely alert’’ to ‘‘extremely sleepy’’ and has been widely used in the literature as a subjective assessment of alertness.
