In addition, the Agency believes that the use of GPS devices by fleets is likely to improve the overall level of safety to the motoring public. This action is consistent with previous Agency action permitting the placement of vehicle safety technologies on CMVs outside the driver’s sight lines to the road and highway signs and signals. FMCSA is not aware of any evidence showing that the installation of other vehicle safety technologies mounted on the interior of the windshield has resulted in any degradation in safety. Section 392.80 of the FMCSRs prohibits (a) drivers from engaging in texting while driving, and (b) motor carriers from allowing or requiring its drivers to engage in texting while driving. The term ‘‘texting’’ is defined in section 390.5 of the FMCSRs as ‘‘manually entering alphanumeric text into, or reading text from an electronic device,’’ and includes, but is not limited to, ‘‘short message service, emailing, instant messaging, a command or request to access a World Wide web page, pressing more than a single button to initiate or terminate a voice communication using a mobile telephone, or engaging in any other form of electronic text retrieval or entry, for present or future communication.’’ While the definition of ‘‘texting’’ in section 390.5 of the FMCSRs expressly excludes ‘‘Inputting, selecting, or reading information on a global positioning system or navigation system,’’ FMCSA strongly encourages CMV drivers utilizing GPS devices under this temporary exemption to minimize/avoid possible distraction associated with using these devices by (1) programming the device before starting to drive, (2) stopping to reprogram the device if necessary, and (3) enabling the voice command on the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Aug 21, 2018 Jkt 244001 device (instead of muting it) to help avoid glancing at the device display. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Terms and Conditions for the Exemption [Docket No. NHTSA–2018–0057] The Agency hereby grants the exemption for a 5-year period, beginning August 22, 2018 and ending August 22, 2023. During the temporary exemption period, motor carriers will be allowed to operate CMVs equipped with GPS devices mounted (1) not more than 100 mm (4 inches) below the upper edge of the area swept by the windshield wipers; or (2) not more than 175 mm (7 inches) above the lower edge of the area swept by the windshield wipers; and (3) outside the driver’s sight lines to the road and highway signs and signals. The exemption will be valid for 5 years unless rescinded earlier by FMCSA. The exemption will be rescinded if: (1) Motor carriers and/or commercial motor vehicles fail to comply with the terms and conditions of the exemption; (2) the exemption has resulted in a lower level of safety than was maintained before it was granted; or (3) continuation of the exemption would not be consistent with the goals and objectives of 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315(b). Interested parties possessing information that would demonstrate that motor carriers operating GPS devices mounted on the windshield in the same location as vehicle safety technologies are not achieving the requisite statutory level of safety should immediately notify FMCSA. The Agency will evaluate any such information and, if safety is being compromised or if the continuation of the exemption is not consistent with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315(b), will take immediate steps to revoke the exemption. Preemption In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31313(d), as implemented by 49 CFR 381.600, during the period this exemption is in effect, no State shall enforce any law or regulation applicable to interstate commerce that conflicts with or is inconsistent with this exemption with respect to a firm or person operating under the exemption. States may, but are not required to, adopt the same exemption with respect to operations in intrastate commerce. Issued on: August 15, 2018. Raymond P. Martinez, Administrator.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Before a Federal agency can collect certain information from the public, it must receive approval from the OMB. In compliance with those requirements, this notice announces that the following information collection request has been forwarded to OMB. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 218, ‘‘Motorcycle helmets,’’ requires that each helmet shall be labeled permanently and legibly in a manner such that the label(s) can be read easily without removing padding or any other permanent part.

NHTSA published a Federal Register notice requesting public comment on SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM 22AUN1 amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 163 / Wednesday, August 22, 2018 / Notices this information collection.1 In response, the agency received three comments, only one of which was relevant to this collection.2 The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) expressed its support for strong motorcycle helmet labeling requirements, and submitted information about motorcycle safety. GHSA commented that this information collection was ‘‘atypical’’ in their view. GHSA explained that typically ICRs involved the collection or submission of information directly to the agency and that while NHTSA spot checks the performance of motorcycle helmets through a compliance program, the content of the label is more for the benefit of consumers and law enforcement. GHSA is correct that a common type of information collection under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) occurs when an agency directly collects information from the public. However, a collection of information, as defined by the PRA, means ‘‘the obtaining, causing to be obtained, soliciting, or requiring the disclosure to third parties or the public, of facts or opinions by or for an agency, regardless of form or format . . .’’ 3 This labeling requirement imposes a disclosure (label) to the public, and is therefore covered by the PRA. NHTSA has sought and received PRA clearance for FMVSS No. 218 dating back to 1984.4 Therefore, NHTSA believes no changes are necessary in response to comments. The following describes the collection of information for which NHTSA intends to seek OMB approval. It is titled ‘‘Motorcycle Helmets (Labeling),’’ OMB Control Number: 2127–0518. NHTSA’s existing collection for FMVSS No. 218 expired during the 60 day notice comment period, therefore the agency has amended the type of request to be a reinstatement of a previously approved collection.

FMVSS No. 218 S5.6 requires that each helmet shall be labeled permanently and legibly in a manner such that the label(s) can be read easily without removing padding or any other permanent part.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 9,100. Estimated Total Annual Burden Cost: $1,300,000 ($1.3 million). The 45 respondents (helmet manufacturers) produce a total of 3,250,000 annual responses. A manufacturer spends approximately 0.0028 hours per response. The estimated annual number of burden hours for helmet manufacturers is 9,100 burden hours per year (3,250,000 × 0.028 hours). Using a total labeling cost of $0.40, the estimated total annual burden cost is $1,300,000 (3,250,000 × $0.40).

    The following describes the collection of information for which 
NHTSA intends to seek OMB approval. It is titled ``Motorcycle Helmets 
(Labeling),'' OMB Control Number: 2127-0518. NHTSA's existing 
collection for FMVSS No. 218 expired during the 60 day notice comment 
period, therefore the agency has amended the type of request to be a 
reinstatement of a previously approved collection.
    Title: Motorcycle Helmets (Labeling).
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0518.
    Type of Request: Reinstatement without change of previously 
approved collection of information.
    Abstract: The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, now 
codified at 49 U.S.C. 30111, authorizes the issuance of FMVSS. 
Moreover, under 49 U.S.C. 30117, the Secretary is also authorized to 
require manufacturers to provide information to first purchasers of 
motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment when the vehicle equipment is 
purchased, in the form of printed matter placed in the vehicle or 
attached to the motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment. The Secretary 
is authorized to issue, amend, and revoke such rules and regulations as 
he/she deems necessary.
    Using this authority, the agency issued the initial FMVSS No. 218 
in 1974. Motorcycle helmets are devices used to protect motorcyclists 
from head injury in motor vehicle crashes. FMVSS No. 218 S5.6 requires 
that each helmet shall be labeled permanently and legibly in a manner

    Estimated Total Annual Burden Cost: $1,300,000 ($1.3 million).
    The 45 respondents (helmet manufacturers) produce a total of 
3,250,000 annual responses. A manufacturer spends approximately 0.0028 
hours per response. The estimated annual number of burden hours for 
helmet manufacturers is 9,100 burden hours per year (3,250,000 x 0.028
