SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    Title: Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems Special Studies.
    OMB Number: 2174 Renewal.
    Type of Request: Request for public comment on proposed collection 
of information.
    Abstract: Improperly inflated tires pose a safety risk, increasing 
the chance of skidding, hydroplaning, longer stopping distances, and 
crashes due to flat tires and blowouts. In an effort to decrease the 
number of vehicles with improperly inflated tires, Tire Pressure 
Monitoring Systems (TPMS) were

[[Page 10686]]

mandated in Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, so 
that drivers are warned when the pressure in one or more of the 
vehicle's tires has fallen to 25 percent or more below the placard 
pressure, or a minimum level specified in the standard, whichever 
pressure is higher. Executive Order 12866 requires Federal agencies to 
evaluate their existing regulations and programs and measure their 
effectiveness in achieving their objectives. This survey (Tire Pressure 
Monitoring Systems Special Study) was conducted in order to evaluate 
whether the frequency of underinflated tires has decreased in vehicles 
with TPMS in comparison to vehicles of the same age without TPMS. 
Survey results led the agency to the determination that additional 
study is needed in regards to analogous aspects of medium- and heavy-
duty (MD/HD) trucks. The supplementary study of MD/HD trucks is not 
expected to begin until 2014; therefore, NHTSA seeks an extension of 
Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems Special Studies in preparation for 
this additional work.
    Affected Public: Individuals.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,925 hours.

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725-17th 
Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.
    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. A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB 
receives it within 30 days of publication.

    Authority:  44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A).

James F. Simons,
Director, Office of Regulatory Analysis and Evaluation.
