    8  water bodies contiguous with state roads.—
    9         (1) This section shall be cited as “Chloe’s Law.”
   10         (2) By June 30, 2018, the department shall install roadside
   11  barriers to shield water bodies contiguous with state roads at
   12  locations where a death due to drowning resulted from a motor
   13  vehicle accident in which a vehicle departed the adjacent state
   14  road during the period between July 1, 2006, and July 1, 2016.
   15  This requirement does not apply to any location at which the
   16  department’s chief engineer determines, based on engineering
   17  principles, that installation of a barrier would increase the
   18  risk of injury to motorists traveling on the adjacent state
   19  road.
   20         Section 10. The Department of Transportation shall review
   21  all motor vehicle accidents that resulted in death due to
   22  drowning in a water body contiguous with a state road and that
   23  occurred during the period between July 1, 2006, and July 1,
   24  2016. The department shall use the reconciled crash data
   25  received from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor
   26  Vehicles and shall submit a report to the President of the
   27  Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives by
   28  January 3, 2017, providing recommendations regarding any
   29  necessary changes to state laws and department rules to enhance
   30  traffic safety.
