National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
Title: An In-Depth Examination of Pedestrian Involved Hit and Run Traffic Crashes.
OMB Number: 2127-New.
Type of Request: Request for public comment on proposed collection of information.
Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was established to reduce the mounting number of deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes on the Nation's highways. As part of this statutory mandate, NHTSA is authorized to conduct research as a foundation for the development of motor vehicle standards and traffic safety programs. Between 1998 and 2007, of the more than 48,000 pedestrian deaths recorded within the United States, over 9,000 (19 percent) were caused by hit-and-run drivers. The data collected in this survey of drivers, along with police crash and court data from 10 counties, will be used to identify areas for targeting improvements, identify scenarios in which hit-and-run collisions are more likely to occur, and assist in the selection of cost-effective countermeasures to reduce the incidence of pedestrian hit-and-run crashes.
Affected Public: Individuals.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 855 hours.
Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725-17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.
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 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.Start Signature
