SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB 
for approval, it must first 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 regulation (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 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;
    (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 for public 
comments on the following proposed collections of information:
    Title: The National Survey on the Use of Booster Seats.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0644.
    Affected Public: Motorists in passenger vehicles at gas stations, 
fast food restaurants, and other types of sites frequented by children 
during the time in which the survey is conducted.
    Form Number: NHTSA Form 1010.
    Abstract: The National Survey of the Use of Booster Seats is being 
conducted to respond to the Section 14(i) of the Transportation Recall 
Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act of 2000. The 
act directs the Department of Transportation to reduce the deaths and 
injuries among children in the 4 to 8 year old age group that are 
caused by failure to use a booster seat by 25%. Conducting the National 
Survey of the Use of Booster Seats provides the Department with 
invaluable information on who is and is not using booster seats, 
helping the Department better direct its outreach programs to ensure 
that children are protected to the greatest degree possible when they 
ride in motor vehicles. The OMB approval for this survey is scheduled 
to expire on October 31, 2012. NHTSA seeks an extension to this 
approval in order to obtain this important survey data, save more 
children and help to comply with the TREAD Act requirement.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 320 hours.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: Approximately 4,800 adult 
motorists in passenger vehicles at gas stations, fast food restaurants, 
and other types of sites frequented by children during the time in 
which the survey is conducted.
    Comments are invited on: 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; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and 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.
