Title: National Automotive Sampling System Tire Pressure Special Study.

OMB Control Number: New.

Frequency: One-time only.

Affected Public: Passenger Motor Vehicle Operator Users of Gasoline Stations

Abstract: The National Automotive Sampling System Tire Pressure Special Study is being conducted to respond to Section 13 of the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Start Printed Page 9410Documentation (TREAD) Act of 2000. The act directs the Department of Transportation to complete rule making to require a warning system in new motor vehicles to indicate under-inflated tires within one year of enactment. The stringent requirement for enactment of the rule requires that needed data on the frequency and pervasiveness of underinflation be collected and provided in a short period. This study will assess the extent to which passenger vehicle operators are aware of the recommended air pressure for their tires, if they monitor air pressure, and to what extent actual tire air pressure differs from that recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.

Estimated One-Time Burden: 1,568 hours.

Number of Respondents: 13,440.
