L. 89–563, Title 1, Sec. 106, 108, and 112) the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has the responsibility to collect accident data that support the establishment and enforcement of motor vehicle regulations and highway safety programs. These regulations and programs are developed to reduce fatalities and the property damage associated with motor vehicle crashes. NHTSA established cooperative agreements with the 50 States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to report a standard set of data on each fatal accident. State employees extract and transcribe information from existing State files including police accident crash reports as well as driver license, vehicle registration, highway department, and vital statistics files. This information comprises a national database, Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), that is NHTSA’s and many States’ principal means of tracking trends in fatalities and quantifying problems or potential problems in highway safety. Because FARS is an on-going data acquisition system, reviews are conducted yearly to determine whether the data acquired are responsive to the total user population needs. FARS data are used extensively by all the NHTSA program and research offices and other DOT modes such as Federal Highway Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Annual changes in the data collected in FARS are minor in terms of operation and method of data acquisition and do not affect the reporting burden of the respondent (State employees utilize existing State crash files). The changes usually involve clarifying adjustments to aid statisticians in conducting more precise analyses and to remove potential ambiguity for the respondents. Affected Public: State, Local and Tribal Government. Estimated Number of Respondents: 52. Frequency: On-going. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 106,244 hours. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (i) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the Department’s performance; (ii) if the information will have practical utility; (iii) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the proposed information collection; (iv) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (v) ways to minimize the burden of the PO 00000 Frm 00224 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 collection of information on respondents including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
