"b.a.r.t.
11:09 pm
does not track users. an app's user location information is only available if the user selects the option to share their location information and then b.a.r.t. only receives the user's location when the user is reporting an incident." the lawsuit is going after b.a.r.t. and the maker of the mobile app. dub nation is celebrating tonight. the warriors are heading to the nba finals for the third year in a row. they swept the san antonio spurs 129-115. kpix5's betty yu reports they made history, too. >> reporter: warriors fans came out tonight to san pedro square in downtown san jose feeling very confident the team would sweep the series and they delivered. they came decked out in dub nation colors to watch history being made. the warriors are the first team in nba history to start the playoffs 12-0. >> it was pretty easy for them i think. i think our warriors are looking forward to the finals

11:13 pm
only on -- manetta. only on 5 maria medina reports on a federal investigation underway on now executives were allowed to walk right onto the tarmac. >> reporter: one security breach after another, including a teen stow-a way and a woman simply able to jump the fence. >> concerning, but it motivates us to insure we have the safest airport possible. >> reporter: but now kpix5 is learning of yet another security branch at manetta, one that went undetected until a tipster came forward. according to a law enforcement source, the tipster tomorrow investigators he or she worked at google and tech execs of the company were passing along a code that opened the signature flight support gate at manetta. >> they have access to the whole commercial side of the airport. >> reporter: a security issue prompting investigation by the tsa, the agency confirming could result in times. >> al-qaeda has told us they

11:15 pm
a real good example of a lackadaisical security mindset. >> reporter: now here is signature's response. on may 16th they said, "we have received confirmation that the tsa concluded its investigation and there were no fines or penalties issued," but today we got this response from them. "we can confirm there is an ongoing investigation by the tsa which signature flight support has and continues to cooperate fully with." now we heard from google late afternoon. they say they aren't aware of the case but are looking into it. at manetta maria medina, kpix5. >> a spokesperson from manetta declined an on camera interview to answer questions about public safety saying the issue is between the tsa and signature. tonight google says it's unaware of any of its employees ever using a code to access the area, but it will cooperate with the investigation. and just a few minutes ago we learned the death toll in the blast of the arianna grande concert has risen. manchester police are now
11:16 pm
saying 22 people were killed and some of them were children. investigators believe one man carried out the attack and they are not sure if he acted alone. a part of highway 1 in monterey county is completely wiped out tonight. we got some drone video for you that shows this stretch of roadway south of big sur state park completely covered in a mountain of dirt and rocks, big slide there. caltrans is working to clean it up, but as of tonight, there is no estimated date to reopen that road. anyone who has driven in san francisco lately will tell you traffic has gone from bad to worse. sure, there are those ride share drivers, more construction, but we've learned there's another big factor driving the gridlock. tonight wilson walker with a story you'll only see on kpix5. [ honking ] >> francisco just gets packed, jammed all the time. >> reporter: it's the day to day problem you can no longer
11:17 pm
escape. >> traffic is moving about 30% slower than it was. >> reporter: so just what exactly has brought city streets to a crawl? >> there's no one factor that's causing traffic congestion in the city. >> reporter: to help us count the ways we spent the day with oscar palma, a man who has spent a little time driving these streets. >> it's been about 18 years. >> reporter: topping his list of traffic jamming suspects? >> too many cars. >> reporter: in oscar's 18 years out here the city has added nearly 100,000 people which means more cars and some of them are getting a lot more attention than others. the latest estimate on the number of ride share drivers in san francisco? 45,000. see if these complaints sound familiar. >> holding up traffic to pick up somebody. >> reporter: how about stopping on a one-way street, throwing on the hazards and walking away from the car? >> they stop in the middle of the street without no hesitation. >> reporter: but there's another growing fleet out there you might not have thought of. >> simple and easy to click and order and we don't think about
11:18 pm
all the duck feet working underwater that make that happen. >> reporter: e commerce might be convenient, but it's flooding our streets with new and entirely unmanaged freight traffic. >> south and north. >> we know the truck traffic is increasing in the city. we know double parking is increasing. >> construction is like they never get done with it. >> reporter: the construction boom has stolen lanes in every direction and then there's the explosion of city road projects. >> our view of a project is that these are bringing really important safety benefits. they're making muni work better and the construction can't wait. >> reporter: tom mcguire is charged with congestion management for sfmta and we asked him about each of these challenges starting with what you might call the ride share mystery. >> unfortunately we don't have a lot of information about just how big of piece they are. >> reporter: that's right. the city thinks all those ride share drivers might be causing problems and say more data is needed that could help us better understand the problem and drive better policy, new rules, maybe even a limit on
11:19 pm
cars, but so far companies like uber aren't exactly sharing despite threats like this from the mayor. >> you want to work with mayor lee right now because if you don't, then we will have to make some decisions about decongesting these streets. >> we'd like to know more there as well for sure. >> reporter: when it comes to freight, we're actually falling behind. seattle, for example, will start rolling out a new freight management experiment later this year. >> reduce the number of failed deliveries or reduce the time a truck spends in their load and unload space. >> reporter: as for the other challenges? >> the transstate terminal won't be around forever. >> reporter: neither will the keep rattling road improvements you're driving around on right now, but many new challenges are here to stay and in some respects we're still at square one just trying to figure out
11:20 pm
how many lyft and uber drivers are out there. >> too much of a good thing is also not good as well. >> we really are trying to solve the congestion problem and try to give people as many al term actives as possible. >> reporter: -- alternatives as possible. >> reporter: the truth is making all this work will probably mean a traffic system different from what we have now and getting there will be much like your dry through the city. it's -- drive through the city. it's going to take a while. san francisco wilson walker, kpix5. imagine sitting in that traffic and it's like97, 98. >> you would lose 42 degrees over a span of just 30 miles as the crow flies which is quicker than the roads, i'm told. 56 degrees in pacifica, 98 in danville. is there anywhere else in the country you can pull this off? there was a 32-degree temperature spread on the east coast, but you'd have to drive
