christian hartnett reports. >> reporter: this outbreak has triggered the warning, get vaccinated now. but even if you already are, those vaccinations you got as a kid might not be protecting you like you think. >> the thing we know is that it does taper off after certain length of time. and your immunity and how well it works with you individually could vary. >> reporter: that means the shot you received when you were a toddler might not be protecting you like it did before leaving you vulnerable to a measles infection. five of those infected in the disneyland outbreak were already immunized. but there's a way to find out if you need another dose of the vaccine called a titer test. it determines the levels of the vaccine in your body. >> if they need another shot we give them a single dose which restores the immunity. >> reporter: today's vaccine covers measles, mumps and rubella. that started in the 171. children get two doses which is 95% effective in preventing infection according to the cdc.

6:13 pm
take a look at this. we took mobile5 on a drive across the golden gate bridge and car after car whizzed by us. but we were doing something very few people do, the 45-mile- per-hour speed limit. and just about everybody else was flying by. the chp says that they are seeing the same thing and kpix 5's john ramos with how the new driving speeds may be an unintended result of the new median barrier. >> reporter: the golden gate bridge district just spent $35 million to install a median barrier to eliminate head-on collisions. but then human nature kicked in. >> an observation that we have made is that the speed on the bridge has increased dramatically. >> reporter: it seems the safer drivers feel the faster they tend to drive. the speed limit is supposed to be 45 miles per hour.
6:14 pm
but set your cruise control to that and the world begins passing you by. so yesterday, the chp began writing tickets. >> today, we did some more targeting. targeted enforcement. and we had a speed of 81 miles an hour in the first -- within the first hour and a half. >> reporter: they say highest speeds are coming from people driving right next to the new barrier. and that also means people are moving faster when they reach the 25-mile-per-hour zone at the toll plaza. and they are not slowing down. >> and we have seen speeds probably almost double what we typically see. >> reporter: officers say drivers seem oblivious to the speed limits. >> it's 45 miles per hour and we have you at 66. >> i didn't realize how fast i was going. but i do feel a sense of security with the barriers there. >> reporter: the new barrier is supposed to make things safer not faster. and if drivers need a reminder of that, the chp says they will be happy to provide one. at the golden gate bridge, john ramos, kpix 5. >> quite honestly anecdotally i
6:15 pm

6:16 pm
people as far away as 10 miles say the stench is unbearable. >> it is noticeable. it's not healthy. the air quality district has received an unusually high number of complaints about the smell. the landfill company says it uses advanced odor technology and says the smell is not from its property. january is looking like a bust for helping california to get out of the drought. after a very wet december, mother nature has turned off the spigot and now a system that could hit doesn't look like much as brian will tell you. experts say things are looking bleak in the mountains, as well. >> the sierra is really hurting. a lot of storms have been warm and the snowpack right now is below 40% of normal. i think it's 30 to 40%. >> to give you an idea of how dry this month has been, sacramento is on track to break a record set back in 1877.

6:21 pm
google may soon be an option if you are in the market for a wireless phone service but the company won't be setting up its own network. new at 6:00, kpix 5 reporter mike sugerman with how it's going to work and why it could spell big bucks. mike. >> reporter: well, is this a game changer? well, we don't know. we'll find out. but when a company as big as google does something, other companies tend to follow and what google wants to do is sell you a data plan. real cheap. you know google is the thing you look at to find things on the web. now it could start being the thing that brings you the web. >> google wins when more people are online. whenever you get people online, it's a very good chance they are going to use a google service that google is going to make money from.
6:22 pm
>> reporter: how do you get more people online? getting there on the phone is easy but it's expensive. so reports are google is going to buy wireless data service from other carriers and then resell it to consumers directly. >> google is going to resell those connections. it's going to come from either sprint or t-mobile. but it will have the google brand name, google will sell it, and, of course, google will use that to try to encourage people to go to their properties. >> reporter: why would you buy google wireless data service? you might just because of the name and reputation. >> i think because google never disappoints me. i trust google. issuing it for a long time. so i probably would just assume it would be amazing and fast. i have been using it for a long time. >> reporter: it wouldn't be any more amazing or faster than any other service it will be buying from but it key is it will be cheaper than market rates now. it can do that because it's so big and wireless may be just a loss leader. >> if google can get people online and make
6:23 pm
their default, that's money in google's bank account. >> it's not 39 or 59 or $109 a month when people are on limited income and can't afford it. >> reporter: martin fulton was in union square taking advantage of free wi-fi. this new service could be aimed at lower income like t-mobile is now. but it could also force other carriers to lower their rates if a cheaper google data plan is popular. other carriers might be forced to compete. how cheap? well, that's a question because t-mobile and sprint will be selling them their data plans because they don't want to get undercut themselves so that will remain to be seen. in san francisco, mike sugerman, kpix 5. >> google had tried to make a dent in the mobile market by buying motorola. it sold the company last year a bay area company is teaming up with automakers to create electric charging superhighways on both coasts. one of the problems you know is

6:25 pm
it's the company's first halal change. to them, it was a new thing, right? a lot of people haven't heard about halal, right? >> usman says it isn't just for muslims and that he is marking to the whole community. coming up a breakthrough in a cold case four decades old. a murder suspect back in the bay area and we have exclusive details on a man being called a psychopathic violent killer. >> what sent stocks soaring on wall street today? >> a tricky animal rescue. what it took to

6:31 pm
like a baby at the funeral and -- it was hard. you know? >> reporter: now, while the dna evidence only ties halbower to two of the murders detectives say the way the other girls were murdered matches. as for the dna the court says the chance it belongs to anyone other than halbower is one in 11 trillion. when we asked halbower about that dna evidence, he said, it was planted. in the newsroom, andria borba, kpix 5. >> halbower is scheduled to be arraigned on monday. billionaire environmentalist tom steyer says he won't seek barbara boxer's senate seat. he spent millions in the past on political races but says, quote, i believe my work right now should be -- should not be in our nation's capital but here at home in california. steyer's decision is good news for attorney general kamala harris, who has already said she intends to run. president obama's expressing condolences and offering sympathy to the people of saudi arabia. their king, abdullah, died
