OMB Number: 2127—NEW.

Abstract: The Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, signed into law on June 1998. Established a New Section 411, entitled State Highway Safety Data Improvements. Under this provision, states may qualify for incentive grant funds by adapting and implementing effective highway safety data and traffic records improvement programs which meet specified statutory criteria. The program identifies three basic records system components, all of which must be present if the state is to retrieve multiple-year grants: (1) A committee to coordinate the development and use of highway safety data and traffic records; (2) a systematic assessment of the state's highway safety data and traffic records; and, (3) a strategic plan for the continued improvement of highway safety data and traffic records.
Affected Public: Those state, local, and tribal government officials applying for incentive grant funds.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 114.
