Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 39 / Thursday, February 27, 2020 / Notices exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, any decision on this petition only applies to the subject vehicles that BMW no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, any decision on this petition does not relieve vehicle distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant vehicles under their control after BMW notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DrugImpaired Driving Criminal Justice Evaluation Tool is designed to allow State, local, territorial, and tribal governments to assess and strengthen their drug-impaired driving programs. The tool consists of questions divided into ten sections representative of critical criminal justice and programmatic elements. The categories include law enforcement, prosecution, judiciary, community supervision, toxicology, treatment, emergency medical services, data, legislation, and program and communications. The Excel file, which can be downloaded PO 00000 Frm 00120 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11449 from NHTSA’s website at https:// www.nhtsa.gov/DUIDtool, allows individual sections to be sent to the appropriate organizational representative for completion. The Drug-Impaired Driving Criminal Justice Evaluation Tool allows users to assess their existing programs to reduce drug-impaired driving through a systematic review of activities, policies, and procedures being implemented. The completed tool is intended purely for the use of State, local, territorial or tribal governments for self-assessment and will not be collected by NHTSA. The tool can help jurisdictions identify gaps in their drug-impaired driving programs, inform strategies to strengthen the programs, and help track progress over time against baseline results. The tool includes links to best practices and resources for strengthening drug-impaired driving programs. The Drug-Impaired Driving Criminal Justice Evaluation Tool is designed to be completed in consultation with representatives most familiar with the relevant program areas, either individually or via group discussion (e.g., with the State DWI Task Force). The tool can be completed in its entirety for a comprehensive program evaluation of the criminal justice system’s ability to respond to drug-impaired driving, or where appropriate to assess one component of the criminal justice system. The evaluation is based on the Capability Maturity Model, used by other Federal agencies, to develop and refine an organization’s software or program development process. The model utilizes a five-step hierarchy of program growth and maturity. The Capability Maturity Model can serve as a benchmark and be repeated to show progress over time. After answering the questions for each subsection of the tool, raters note their program strength level for each component using a defined 0–5 point scale. Scores are tabulated on the final ‘‘Scoring’’ sheet to provide an overall view of program performance for each component and to compare against baseline results for repeat evaluations. Planning sections are included for each issue area following ratings to document program strengths, opportunities, and goals for improvement. NHTSA conducted a limited test of the evaluation tool to obtain feedback on how to enhance and improve its value. Since making refinements recommended during testing, NHTSA is interested in learning more about potential end-users’ impressions of the tool.
