Title: Five State Survey of Alcohol Targets of Opportunity.
OMB Number: 2127-New.
Type of Request: New information collection.
Abstract: The prevention of alcohol-impaired driving is one of NHTSA's top priorities in reducing deaths and injuries from motor-vehicle crashes. The Partners in Progress goal is to reduce the number of alcohol related fatalities from 15,935, in 1998 to 11,000 by the year 2005. In support of this goal, five states were awarded cooperative agreements by NHTSA to demonstrate and evaluate the effectiveness of traffic safety programs that combine increased law enforcement efforts with substantial publicity about these programs. These states were selected because of their potential for reducing the substantial number of percentage of alcohol related fatalities occurring each year within their state.
Affected Public: Those individuals and law enforcement officials from the five states evaluated to reducing driving after drinking.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,499 hours.
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 Departments 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.Start Signature
