6:15 pm
happened. and so some sort of mechanical failure happened but exactly what, was it the brakes or what else might it have been, we don't know. investigators are talking to the driver and fortunately he was able to walk away and be able to talk with them just after this incident. in san francisco, juliette goodrich, kpix 5. san francisco police officers are about to get body cameras. but there are concerns about their use. the cameras would help officers in investigations. but legal organizations including the bar association say they are worried they could actually taint them. they are against officers being allowed to review footage especially incidents involving the use of force. >> you would never think under any circumstances of showing you an accused or showing a, um, witness video of a crime or from, um, a -- a body camera before they made a statement. why? because you would not want to infect their statement. >> the san francisco police

6:19 pm
consumption. five of the six largest water suppliers hit their conservation targets. the exception, the marin municipal water district, which fell just short of its goal. you know, it's interesting, nobody should be watering at all outside anymore. that should be turned off for the rest of the year into the springtime. >> maybe that's why it's harder to meet the goals because in november you can't just say i'll turn everything off and that reduces it by half maybe. you know what would solve this? rain. we have two chances of rain in the seven-day forecast. we are on the way there. we haven't been there in five years but hopefully we'll get there soon. those are not holiday lights. those are cars on 580 at the 680 interchange by pleasanton, dublin and livermore, the tri- valley. a lot of those cars probably going to the outlets out there. morgan hill 63. your high today. livermore only 58 but nine degrees warmer than yesterday. fremont 61. san francisco officially 58 degrees today.

6:26 pm
that san jose has invested heavily in public artworks is a collective decision. he also says expression is destined to provoke a response and the fact that people are arguing over blue donuts is not a bad thing. >> in a way, the fact that we're talking about it does suggest to me that it's achieved some goal of recognition. and that in and of itself possesses value. >> reporter: so it turns out this is both a work of art and a waste of money. and whether these beauty in that depends on which beholder is eyeing it. in san jose, john ramos, kpix 5. >> you like them, yeah? >> i love donuts. blue, whatever color. doesn't matter. flavors, mm. coming up in our next half- hour, governor brown responding to critics who say he is not doing enough to protect california solar industry. >> plus the u.s. sending more troops to the middle east as it expands the efforts against isis. ,,
