Notice; request for information.
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. This information collection is associated with the agency's study by a research contractor which will investigate commercial motor vehicle driver risk factors. This information collection will aid FMCSA in developing future safety initiatives by examining a wide array of driver and situational factors to determine if they are associated with increased or decreased crash and incident involvement. On March 23, 2007 FMCSA published a Federal Register notice allowing for a 60-day comment period on the ICR. Two comments were received regarding the utility of the survey. These comments will be considered during the information collection activities for the study.
