May 21, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a Federal Register notice and request for comments on a proposed collection of information (a.k.a. ICR). This notice is procedural such that the agency must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the collection of certain information by the Agency.
The proposed collection of information supports research addressing safety-related aspects of driver interactions with certain advanced driver assistance technologies.
Responses to this ICR should address the following questions:
- Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;
- the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
- how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
- how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic submission of responses.
Given the nature of the subject matter, MEMA is evaluating whether the association will file comments. If you are interested in supporting that effort, please contact Leigh Merino.
