This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on June 13, 2006, page 34142, and allowed 60-days for public comment. No public comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment.

Proposed Collection

Title: Preventing Motor Vehicle Crashes Among Young Drivers, OMB No. 0925-new.

Type of Information Collection Request: New.

Need and Use of Information Collection: Motor vehicle crash risk is particularly elevated among novice young drivers during the first six months and 1000 miles of independent driving. Previously, researchers in the Prevention Research Branch of the NICHD have demonstrated the efficacy of the Checkpoints Program for increasing parental management of teen driving and reducing exposure to high risk driving conditions during the first 12 months after licensure. The current research seeks to test the effectiveness of providing an educational program entitled The Checkpoints Program to facilitate parental management of teen driving when delivered at motor vehicle administration offices at the time the teen obtains a permit, at the time of license, or at both permit and license.

Frequency of Response: 3 times over two years.

Affected Public: Individuals or households.

Type of Respondents: Adolescents and parents/guardians.

The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 4000; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 3; Average Burden Hours Per Response: 35; and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 4,200. The annualized cost to respondents is estimated at: $42,000 (based on $10 per hour).

There are no Capital Costs to report. There are no Operating or Maintenance Costs to report.
