Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Request for Comment

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. chapter 35), this notice announces that the Information 
Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below will be submitted to the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. The ICR describes the 
nature of the information collection and its expected burden. A Federal 
Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting public comments 
on the following information collection was published on May 8, 2013 
(Federal Register/Vol. 78, No. 89/pp. 26848-26849).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    OMB Control Number: 2127-New.
    Title: Matching Countermeasures to Driver Types and Speeding 
Behaviors.
    Form No.: NHTSA 1198.
    Type of Review: Regular.
    Respondents: The survey respondents will be a random sample of 
drivers currently licensed and living in Idaho. The sample will be 
stratified by age, gender, and numbers of citations for speeding in the 
previous three years.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: An estimated sample size of 3200 
drivers is projected for the survey mailing with a projected response 
rate of 50% (1600 drivers).
    Estimated Time per Response: The average amount of time for each 
respondent to complete the survey is estimated at 25 minutes. This 
includes any time needed to retrieve information.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 444.6 hours.
    Frequency of Collection: The survey will be administered a single 
time.
    Abstract: In this study, NHTSA will be conducting a survey of a 
random sample of licensed drivers in the State of Idaho, stratified by 
age, gender and number of speeding convictions, in order to further 
explore typologies of driver speeding types developed in our recent 
Motivations for Speeding project and our 2011 National Survey of 
Speeding Attitudes and Behavior with a focus on finding appropriate 
countermeasures for various speeder types. This project will collect

[[Page 54725]]

information on the attitudes and experiences of the drivers surveyed 
with regard to speeding countermeasures as well as actual driving 
records and match countermeasures with driver types.
    One objective of this project is to further examine the driver 
speeding typologies from the two previous studies. Each of the 
typologies provides a different way of defining speeder types. The four 
speeder types from the Motivations for Speeding project are based on 
the actual driving behaviors of a small sample of volunteer drivers. 
The three speeder types from the 2011 national phone survey are based 
on self-reports from a nationally representative sample of drivers. 
This project will compare these two ways of defining types of drivers 
with regard to their speeding behavior using driver records and the 
results of a mail survey of a representative sample of fully-licensed 
drivers and examine the utility of each way of defining types of 
speeders.
    A second objective of this project is the exploration of 
appropriate speeding countermeasures for various driver speeding types 
and roadways. This includes examining various countermeasures applied 
to speeding, such as traditional law enforcement, in-vehicle 
technologies, and driver education. This project will collect 
information on the attitudes and experiences of the drivers surveyed 
with regard to speeding countermeasures and match countermeasures with 
driver types from the two speeding typologies. Based on the analysis of 
this matching, recommendations for the most appropriate speeding 
countermeasures for various driver types will be produced.
    The third objective of this project is to match actual driver 
records with individual survey responses in order to compare patterns 
of actual driving violations with speeding types and other responses, 
and to validate self-report information found in the survey. The driver 
records data will also be used to conduct a non-response bias analysis 
for the survey.

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. Section 3506(c)(2)(A).

    Issued in Washington, DC, on August 30, 2013.

Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
