Title: Crash Risk Associated with Drug and Alcohol Use by Drivers in Fatal and Serious Injury Crashes. Form No.: Type of Review: Regular. Respondents: Participants will include seriously or fatally injured crash-involved drivers (n = 2,500) and matched non-crash-involved drivers (n = 5,000). Crash-involved drivers will include seriously injured drivers who are transported to a trauma center by emergency medical services and fatally injured drivers who are transported directly to the medical examiner’s office. Sampling will occur at three trauma centers and within the roadway catchment area served by the trauma center(s). Non-crash-involved drivers will be matched to injured drivers on crash day of the week, crash time of day, and crash direction of travel. Estimated Time per Participant: Surveys will be administered to injured patients capable of responding and control participants to collect demographic information, trip information, self-reported drug/alcohol use, and opinions about driving while using alcohol/drugs. Control participants will also be asked to provide a preliminary breath test (PBT) sample. The expected average completion time for the survey, and PBT sample for controls, is 10 minutes. Data collection will include biological samples (i.e., blood) provided by both crash-involved and non-crash-involved drivers. Collection of the biological sample is expected to take approximately 10 minutes for control participants and less than 1 minute for seriously/fatally injured drivers. The PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32757 total estimated time per participant is approximately 20 minutes. Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 1,250 hours per year; for a total of 2,500 across two years. Frequency of Collection: Each participant will only respond to the survey and biological sample requests a single time during the study period. Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) seeks to examine the risk of being severely injured in a motor vehicle crash when drivers use licit and illicit drugs. This effort will involve studying seriously or fatally injured drivers in crashes and matched non-crashinvolved drivers. Participants will include seriously injured drivers who are transported to a trauma center by emergency medical services and fatally injured drivers transported directly to the medical examiner’s office. This study will employ a case-control design that matches two drivers not involved in a crash for every crash-involved driver. Control drivers will be selected at or near the location of the crash where a driver was seriously injured or killed. Researchers will match control drivers on crash day of the week, crash time of day, and crash direction of travel. Data collection will include a biological sample (i.e., blood) from both crashinvolved and control drivers. Collection of samples from seriously injured drivers will be subject to State and Trauma Center policies regarding collection of fluid samples for research purposes. Samples from fatally injured drivers will be collected in accord with State, Trauma Center, and/or coroner/ medical examiner policies. Self-report surveys will be administered to injured patients capable of responding and control participants to collect demographic information, reason for driving trip, self-reported drug/alcohol use, and opinions about driving while using alcohol/drugs. In the event a seriously injured driver is unconscious, the researcher will, if the driver is capable of responding, return later to collect the information. All participating control drivers will be asked to respond to the survey items, provide a preliminary breath test sample, and provide a biological sample. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information: NHTSA’s mission is to save lives, prevent injuries and reduce traffic-related health care and other economic costs. The agency develops, promotes and implements educational, engineering and enforcement programs with the goal of ending preventable tragedies and reducing economic costs associated with vehicle use and E:\FR\FM\17JYN1.SGM 17JYN1 32758 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 135 / Monday, July 17, 2017 / Notices highway travel. In 2010 and 2011, NHTSA conducted the first large-scale carefully controlled study in the U.S. designed to estimate the relative crash risk associated with drug use by drivers. Using a case-control design, researchers collected information from crashinvolved and non-crash involved drivers in Virginia Beach, Virginia. That effort focused on acquiring data at crash sites and resulted in very few seriously or fatally injured drivers entering the sample. As such, it was not possible to assess the relationship between drug use and serious crashes. Other studies have examined the prevalence of drugs in seriously and fatally injured drivers, but none has used a case-control design such as the one proposed in the current study that will allow for an estimation of risk associated with drug use by drivers seriously injured or killed in a motor vehicle crash. Using the casecontrol approach in this manner will complete the relative risk assessment for the full range of injury severities using comparable methodologies. The large sample of seriously and fatally injured drivers gathered by this project using a case-control methodology will lead to a better understanding of the relative crash risk of drug involved driving. The results of this project will assist NHTSA in determining how different drug classes are related to driver safety which will help the Agency provide guidance to the States and Federal Government as each considers policies related to drugged driving.

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 PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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: Visual Scanning Training for Older Drivers. Type of Request: New information collection. OMB Clearance Number: None. Form Number: NHTSA Forms 1400, 1401 and 1402. 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 collect information from licensed older drivers to determine (1) their eligibility to participate in a study of the effectiveness of a visual scanning training protocol to improve driving safety, (2) their attitudes about the training procedures and their perceptions of its benefits, and (3) the driving performance during on-road evaluations to measure training effectiveness. Study participation will be voluntary and solicited through informational sessions delivered by a research team member to residents of a continuing care retirement community. The administrator of the host facility will post notices describing the presentation. During the presentation, attendees will be invited to join the research study. Those who indicate an interest in participating will be asked their age and four screening questions to determine their eligibility for the study. A research team member will make appointments to answer any questions participants may have about the study, to obtain their signatures on an informed consent agreement approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB), and to check for color vision and binocular vision limitations. Consented study participants will be randomly assigned within age and gender categories to either participation in the visual scanning training program (four one-on-one training sessions of one-hour each) or to a control (placebo) activity for the same amount of time.
