6:00 pm
staying in an rv during the week and driving home on their days off and since the rvs are parked on city property it's all legal. embarrassing for the city? >> it's embarrassing for any city. >> reporter: city leaders had no idea this was going on until we brought it up this morning. so they are just now starting to scratch their heads trying to figure out what to like possibly adding more security including better fencing to protect the officers who are sleeping inside these rvs at night. it was measure b pension reform that voters approved back in 2012 that cut officer pay and benefits and triggered a mass exodus of officers leaving the department. mayor sam liccardo said the long-term solution now is for voters to pass measure f to boost pay and they can hire more cops. >> we need to restore this police department so we don't have officers working multiple overtime shifts on the same day in the same week. >> reporter: they will determine whether to declare a
6:01 pm
state of emergency to visit regular detectives to police patrol. a councilman says it's a short- term fix and all other options haven't been exhausted. even after seeing the rv's he stands firm. >> we need to give them more money. there are many things i think we can do. declaring an emergency isn't going to get the police officers out of their mobile homes. it's going to exacerbate the problem. >> reporter: the police union has known about the rvs for a while but didn't want to talk about them because of officer safety. president paul kelly says it underscores how bad the situation is in san jose. >> we are not going to retain officers. we are not going to recruit officers. we are going to keep on sleeping in a parking lot until we can get measure f across the line and certain negotiations to get over the line, as well. >> reporter: in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. >> the mayor wants voters to approve giving cops a raise but what else should san jose do to get more officers on the
6:02 pm
streets? kpix 5's len ramirez says there is another plan that people are talking about. what is that, len? >> reporter: that's right, veronica. the same councilmember that kiet talked to also has an idea that he said will give overworked officers more rest. unfortunately, it will also hit them in the pocketbook. >> i think that our police are doing a great job for the city. you know, we're still one of the best cities in the united states to live in and i am concerned that they are overstretched and they are working on the job while being tired. >> reporter: councilmember is worried san jose's unprecedented police shortage means officers are working too many overtime hours just to fill basic patrol duties. his solution? cut or eliminate pay jobs for full time officers and turn some of those jobs over to reserve officers or private security. >> i'm talking festival jobs, working at the mall. i know that the officers will earn extra money. but they can earn extra money working for the city. >> it's a hair brained idea!
6:03 pm
>> reporter: the proposal was condemned by the police union which says it could have the opposite effect of giving officers more rest. police officers often volunteer for pay jobs to earn extra money under this proposal the union says calls for service for on-duty officers could increase from schools, hospitals, churches and festivals all of which privately pay off-duty officers to be there. >> which is going to create more 911 calls for the patrol division to have to respond to all these locations which is obviously the problem we're in now. we don't have enough cops. we're in a state of emergency. >> reporter: lot city disputes that the reason not postponement of one high- profile festival was an officer shortage -- >> it was pushed off because the sponsors didn't come forward or secondary employment didn't meet the 45-day deadline. >> reporter: the bacon festival organizers showed their application was in two weeks before the deadline. the city now says the application was "incomplete." >> even if we did miss a couple of fields, when we submit it they usually give us feedback
6:04 pm
saying, hey, you need to fill this in. it just took a long time for them to give us that feedback and i think that was one of the challenges. >> reporter: the bacon festival is now planned for october 15 and 16. meantime, councilmember khamis plans to propose his idea at the next council meeting. incidentally, that's the same meeting that the city will propose this emergency measure to allow the police chief to redeploy more of his forces from inside and investigative jobs out to patrols. reporting live in san jose, len ramirez, kpix 5. some homeowners in daly city have a mess on their hands after a water main break sent a river of mud down the street into their homes. the water department says that it was a contractor who broke the line about 9:30 this morning at san jose avenue and wilson street. at one point 6 to 8 inches of water were flowing. more than a dozen homes have been damaged. crews had to pump and sweep all
6:05 pm
that water and mud out. >> i could feel the pressure on my legs pushing but i'm pretty strong. it didn't knock me down. it did have a force to it. >> for a while 11 homes had no water. it's now back on. east bay commuters got a little smarter today. [chuckling] highway signs along i-80 smart corridor went live. but how to avoid congestion? jessica flores is driving on the east shore freeway. hey, jessica. >> reporter: veronica, that's right. we are driving westbound on i- 80 right now. and i can tell you actually things are going pretty smoothly. there are no accidents of the let me give you a look at what we're looking at. let me switch cameras for you. this is what we're looking at right now. there are no accidents right now. but if there were, these signs would show drivers which lanes are blocked and those structures will be dark if there are no problems, they
6:06 pm
will light up if there is a problem. in the east bay, slow-moving traffic is a sign of the times. more workers, more commuters, more headaches. what's it like being a driver having to drive that? >> frustrate. >> annoyed. >> frustrated, grumpy. >> reporter: these digital signs could provide some relief warning of accidents. the signs are in the 20-mile stretch to the bay bridge. this is where drivers face about a 30-minute delay in their morning commutes. >> we are hoping to achieve some congestion relief in terms of reducing travel time delay. >> reporter: caltrans animation shows house it works. green arrows mean good to go. yellow x means there's a problem ahead. and move lanes. red x means a crash is blocking the lane. move over when it's safe. within. >> within this corridor there are approximately 25 collisions
6:07 pm
or lane blocking incidents on average every week. >> reporter: caltrans says half of the 25 crashes that happen here are secondary collisions. they happen after the first crash when there is a long backup. >> we are hoping to reduce especially those secondary collisions and a similar project in seattle reduced those collisions by 25% on the weekend, 11% overall. >> reporter: caltrans is hoping for at least five minutes of drive time savings. for some, priceless minutes. >> look at the signs and it's helpful. >> reporter: but coming at a cost. the entire i-80 corridor project is $80 million. and again, there will be 11 advisory structures activated on the 20-mile westbound stretch 80 between the carquinez bridge and the bay bridge. this is not the only part of this project. there will be more signs on san pablo avenue directing drivers when they should get on the freeway if there is a crash
6:08 pm
