Abstract

    Some States impose restrictions on drivers who have impairments 
that may affect safety, for example, limiting a driver whose vision is 
declining to daytime driving only. However, it is unclear whether 
drivers comply with those restrictions. This study will explore this 
issue by documenting driving habits of drivers with restrictions 
imposed by the licensing authority, drivers with restrictions 
recommended by a driving rehabilitation specialist but without State-
imposed restrictions, and a control group of unrestricted drivers of 
similar age. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 
proposes to collect information from older adult licensed drivers about 
their driver license status and driving habits. Drivers will volunteer 
for the study by responding to a mailed or individually-delivered 
solicitation. Researchers will ask drivers seven questions to determine 
eligibility to participate in the study, then describe the proposed 
study to respondents who qualify. Each driver who meets study inclusion 
criteria will then be asked if he or she wishes to participate. If yes, 
a project assistant will ask for a description of the car in order to 
identify it and install a data collection system that will collect all 
remaining data necessary for the study. In sum, the proposed questions 
will allow research staff to ensure that prospective participants meet 
study inclusion criteria and facilitate installing data collection 
instruments in the participants' vehicles. Findings will provide 
information about the extent to which drivers comply with license 
restrictions and with certified driving rehabilitation specialist 
recommendations, and whether such restrictions lead to reduced driving 
exposure. NHTSA will provide the findings to States for their use in 
developing restricted licensing practices aimed at reducing injuries 
and loss of life on the highway.

ADDRESSES: Send comments regarding the burden estimate, including 
suggestions for reducing the burden, to the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street 
NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: Desk Officer for Department of 
Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or by 
email at oira_submission@omb.eop.gov, or fax: 202-395-5806.
    Comments are Invited On: whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department of Transportation, 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 of this 
notice.

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

    Issued in Washington, DC on August 30, 2013.

Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
