Proposed Collection: Assessing an Online Process to Study the Prevalence of Drugged Driving in the U.S: Development of the Drugged Driving Reporting System, 0925-New, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The study seeks to provide an improved understanding of the prevalence of drugged driving among adult drivers in the U.S and will assess the effectiveness of the online survey implementation process. The primary objectives of the study are to: (a) To provide comprehensive data on drugged driving; (b) determine if the Drugged Driving Survey Instrument (DDS) is an effective and accurate measure of drugged driving among licensed U.S. Drivers aged 18 and older. and, (c) to assess the effectiveness of the survey implementation process, including various levels of incentives for participation to determine the appropriate/optimal incentive amount needed to obtain the desired number of total survey respondents within the timeframe within which survey data will be collected. The findings will provide valuable information concerning various aspects of substance use and driving behavior, including: (1) Demographic information about drivers who do and do not drive while impaired by medication and/or drugs (e.g. age, zip code, type of driver's license); (2) which drugs/medications are most likely to be used while driving; (3) drivers' beliefs and attitudes toward drugged driving.

OMB approval is requested for 2 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total annualized estimated burden hours are 750.
