OMB Number: 2127-0006.

Abstract: Under both the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, as amended, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has the responsibility to collect accident data that support the establishment and enforcement of motor vehicle regulations and highway safety programs. These regulations and programs are developed to reduce the severity of injury and the property damage associated with motor vehicle accidents.

The total user population includes Federal and State agencies and the private sector.

Affected Public: State, Local or Tribal Government.

Estimated Annual Burden: 98,655 hours.

Number of Respondents: 52.

A Comment to OMB is most effective if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication.
