Download as PDF jspears on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 169 / Friday, August 30, 2019 / Notices Estimated Number of Respondents: 56. Respondents include one representative from each State, populated Territory and the District of Columbia. Frequency: Annually. Number of Responses: N/A. Estimated Individual Burden: 18 hours. The Individual Burden for each of the 56 respondents is 18 hours per year. It is estimated that each respondent will spend an additional 1.5 hours per month ensuring a subset of data from the existing State Dataset is transmitted to the National Dataset. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,008. Total burden hours are estimated based upon ongoing electronic submissions from each respondent, with machine to machine transmittal. NHTSA estimates that this information collection will involve 56 respondents spending approximately 18 hours providing information for NEMSIS. Therefore, the total annual burden estimate is 1,008 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Cost: $50,954. NHTSA estimated the total annual burden cost using the total average compensation costs for State, Territorial and local government workers of $50.55 per hour as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in December 2018. Therefore, the total cost associated with the 1,008 burden hours is $50,954. There are no additional anticipated costs to respondents or record keepers, beyond what they have already set up to meet their own State needs for this information. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspects of this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) 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.

NHTSA proposes to approach up to 250 drivers appearing at the Wake County, NC district court because of speeding infractions to ascertain their interest in participating in the study after their case has been adjudicated. Of those 250, we expect to collect information from 150 potential participants determine their eligibility for the study with the goal of recruiting 100 voluntary participants. The 100 participants will complete an informed consent form, three driver speeding questionnaires (before the course, right after the course, and one month after the course) to explore the effects of the course on their attitudes and beliefs regarding speeding as well as their tendency to speed, a course evaluation, and sensation-seeking questionnaire to measure psychological factors related to risky behaviors. In addition, NHTSA will collect naturalistic driving data, which involves unobtrusive observation of driving in a natural, on-road setting using a vehicle instrumented with position, speed, and other sensors. This collection is solely reporting, and there are no recordkeeping costs to the respondents. NHTSA will use the information to produce a technical report that presents the results of the study. The technical report will provide aggregate (summary) statistics and tables as well as the results of statistical analysis of the information, but it will not include any personal information. The technical report will be shared with State highway offices, local governments, and those who develop driver education and traffic safety communications that aim to reduce speed-related crashes. The total estimated burden for recruiting 250 participants (42 hours), for screening 150 participants (23 hours) and for 100 participants to complete the study (600 hours) is 665 total hours. Respondents: Participation in this study will be voluntary, and 100 participants will be recruited from drivers that attend the Wake County, NC district court because of speeding infractions after their case has been adjudicated. An estimated 250 people will be approached and have the study described to them, and 150 people will be screened to recruit the 100 who will complete the study. Participants will be licensed drivers over 18 years old who VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:43 Aug 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 have had a speeding citation in the past 3 years. Estimated Time per Participant: The estimated time for recruiting 250 possible participants is 10 minutes per person. The estimated time for screening the 150 possible participants is nine minutes per person to complete the screener questionnaire and provide contact information. The estimated time for the 100 study participants is six hours per person to complete the informed consent, take the three-hour and 30-minute course, complete all questionnaires, and wait for equipment to be installed and uninstalled from their vehicles. Total Estimated Burden Hours: The total estimated annual burden is 665 hours for the project activities. Participation in this study is voluntary, and there are no costs to respondents beyond the time spent completing the questionnaires and visits to the study facility. Frequency of Collection: This study is one-time data collection, and there will be no recurrence. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information: NHTSA was established to reduce 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 for the development of traffic safety programs. In 2017, there were 9,717 fatalities in speeding-related crashes—26% of all fatal crashes. Public information and education are important elements of any effective speed management program. Recent NHTSA research has indicated that many drivers feel they lack sufficient knowledge about speeding and would like more information on stopping distances, laws, and risks involved. This project is designed to examine the effectiveness of basic driver education covering speed, laws, and risks of speeding in changing driver attitudes and behaviors regarding speeding. This information will be useful to State highway offices, local governments, and those who develop driver education and traffic safety communications that aim to reduce speed-related crashes.
