san jose is $2400 a month. that amount is pushing a lot of people out. a new berkeley poll found 58% of residents considered moving out because housing is too high. the whole solution is inside the governor's office right now. a bill is on the desk to sign. inside that bill is going to require more subsidized housing units inside apartment housing, complexes are in the area. san jose and throughout the bay area. that can't come soon enough. as we all know, today is the 19th and we have to pay that rent in 12 days. live in san jose, rick boone. >> thank you, rick. we have researched the bay area housing market overnight. a report from the california association of realtors says the median price for a single family home is over 908,0$908,000. a combination of job growth and
low inventory is driving the prices higher. interest rates are good, too. the five counties with the lowest inventory are the bay area. san mateo tops, alameda. i filed a row port talking about this topic. you can find it on www.nbcbayarea.com. bart investigators are releasing details about a bizarre attempted robbery. an oakland woman says she was handed a note on a bart train demanding she give up her wallet and phone while two guns were pointed at her. they say the robbery may have been caught on surveillance camera. you are looking at it right now. we are going to show you -- there it is right there. she is a strawberry blond woman. the would be victim says she faked a seizure. the suspect then took off.
a deputy is under investigation after his gun was stolen from his car. this happened on sunday. the gun was in the trunk of the parked rental car, not a metal lock box, which is the department policy. this is an ongoing policy. the guns stolen have been used in a number of local shootings including the killing of kate steinle two years ago, then a man shot by a san francisco police officer's stolen gun in a deadly shooting. 5:08. in our investigative unit found between 2010 and 2016 a total of six guns reported lost from the san francisco sheriff's department. you can watch the full investigation at www.nbcbayarea.com. two north bay law enforcement agencies are hoping to get their drone programs off the ground. the sonoma county sheriff's office in santa rosa police department has the gear in
place. according to a democrat, a few hurdles have been cleared for the drones to take flight. they are hoping to can keep the drones from suspects and helping with search and rescue operations. specific policies still need to be drafted. that would come after each agency receives public feedback. a year's long battle over access to public parks for dogs continues. that is the word this morning. the state house passed an amendment to restrict canine access to the park. that move comes nine months after the golden gate national recreation area approval restricting off-leash dog walking. right now at 5:09 on this tuesday morning, we are starting out with clear skies and some chilly temperatures. we are only right now at 48 degrees in napa and 59 degrees now in san jose. if you are going hiking today in the south bay, we start with a few clouds, breezy winds,

officers have increased patrol and installed new security cameras. people we have talked with have mixed reactions with closing twin peaks. hear from them online, www.nbcbayarea.com. it looks like california voters will get to decide on a plan to provide $4 billion in funding for parks and water projects. last week, they approved a measure to restore parks and waterways along with boosting flood protections. if the governor finds it, the measure would appear on next june's primary ballot. >> happening today, frontier airlines is expected to have nonstop service out of the international airport. more of it. the denver based airline is the latest to join the airport, which we reported in july with a lot of enthusiasm. services to las vegas begin november 1th. i have family in denver and
austin. nonstop is good. the equifax disaster is getting worse. they have been hacked more than once. >> the second hack dates back to march. >> they never told us about it. on the face of it, it violates california law. we knew they were hacked in july. that was the controversy that broke in july. a second hack took place earlier and was conducted by the same hackers. california state law demands companies that do business in the state notify people when unencrypted data was stolen and do so immediately. we were the first state to require that in 2003. the dow closed at the 40th record high this year. considering the market has only been open 180 business days this year, that's a batting average of .222 where every hit there's a home run. toys "r" us filed bankruptcy cht it's still open.

it's up two spots from number six. the planning agency released the study that fond traffic congestion during the rush hour commute has increased 80% since 2010. look at the graphics on the screen. if you compare the time spent in traffic in 2010, it was around nearly two minutes stuck in traffic 35 miles an hour or less compared to 2016 which jumps to 3.5 minutes. according to the mtc, the worst is the afternoon commute out of sf. drivers trying to get from 101 to the bay bridge. number two on the list happens to be the worst for the morning, it's for commuters trying to get from hercules to san francisco mainly using the east shore freeway down to and across the bay bridge. the study found this is the only route that stays congested throughout the day with no break in between.
if you look down the list, a lot of familiar hot spots. highway 101 in mountainview. you have the sunol grade, as i mentioned, 880 between fremont and hayward. the list goes on. they point out the increased drive times show the job market in sf and silicon valley are strong. it shows how commuters find affordable housing how far they drive to and from work. they hope new express lane projects ease congestion on 880 and 680. we did a little research this morning. earlier this year, there's a navigation ranking for the worst commute nationwide. sf was ranked number two behind l.a., new york and san jose, number five. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much, bob. this can't be a surprise to you,
mike. you deal with it every day. >> traffic out there. everybody says isn't it getting worse? now we know. >> 80%. that's bad. >> worse than i hoped. look at the live shot we have. for berkeley, this is one of the areas bob is talking about as far as where the traffic is bad, consistently bad all day. the headlights are coming down the east shore freeway frchlt the top of the screen, we have around the bend, past golden gate, right here. this is westbound 80 coming toward the bay bridge. now, all day long, university avenue is going to be crowded. in the afternoon, it's going to build up away from the bay bridge. show you where it is on the map as well. again, this area slowing there by golden gate field. bob talked about getting out of san francisco. we know that gets crowded early afternoon, especially on a friday. we get to almost noon, folks getting out of the city and the east. things are getting worse
starting earlier. 280 in both directions jammed up. that's much more focused than it used to be. 280 is the alternate. 101 is already slowing. 280 has problems as well. the afternoon drive jams up early through the sunol area on a friday. you can't get through after 2:00 without major brake lights. lanes of eastbound 80 are back open after nearly 40 minute closure overnight in san francisco. chp police say someone was hit and killed when they were walking along the freeway near 4th before the bay bridge. this happened just before 4:00 this morning. all lanes reopened just before 4:40 a.m. no word on why that person was walking on the road. happening today, san francisco leaders vote on a plan to make rental cars less vulnerable to thieves. they are considering two proposals. one calls for a rental company to take off bar code stickers
and advertising from the vehicles. the other measure calls for them to educate tourists and taking their valuables with them. car break-ins are prevalent in tourist hot spots, no surprise. we have shown you that car break-ins are at epic levels. most are car rentals. 26,000 car burglaries in the cities in 2015 up 34% from the year before. we found the problem is not just in san francisco, it is, in fact, happening all across the bay area. 5:36. in berkeley, people are taking an unusual step warning parents about a man that is a potential threat to children. be aware of this man here on your screen, william nicholas turner. recent incidents prompted this warning. in june, he was accused of getting small children on a
playground a mysterious drink. officers arrested him. he's been on a psychiatric hold before and ordered to stay away from parks and schools. >> outside a preschool at 6:30 in the morning, stripped down to his underwear. the totality of the circumstances, we find troubling. >> turner is not violating parole by walking around. if he loiters around schools and parks, it is a violation and when people should call police. a pre-trial hearing in the case of jahi mcmath. we reported an alameda county judge allowed the malpractice suit to move forward and be decided by a jury. in 2013, the hospital declared the 13-year-old girl brain dead, following an operation to remove her tonsils. jahi is still alive and shows signs of life and wants the hospital to pay for her care. no trial date has been set. 5:37. today, we are expecting a better
understanding of how many new cases of hiv infections are recorded in san francisco. a new report will be released this afternoon by the getting to zero program. it's a program by the united nations to end new hiv infections. san francisco adopted a program in 2015 and hopes to be the first city to achieve the goal. the number of new hiv cases in san francisco has been declining for more than a decade. just last week, public health officials reported there were 223 new infections in the city in 2016. that's down slightly from the year before. overnight, we searched through san francisco's department of public health data and found a better perspective for you. this year, 104 new cases have been reported. that's a stark contrast to back in 2006 when there were 530 new infections. last year, there were 16,000 people living with hiv in san francisco. 90% of them were men and more than half were white.
