the lower deck of the bay bridge. so traffic moving much better now. and as you can see, we have a few slowdowns just as you approach that earlier accident. it was right at 4th street. but chp canceled the "sig alert." eastshore freeway looking a- okay. we do see a few slowdowns along richmond parkway, nothing to write home about. you have a 14-minute ride from 14 to the maze. at the maze about 10 minutes into san francisco, a few cars backing up in the cash lanes. 580 the usual slowdowns but not even that usual because we are still in the green, 23 minutes between 205 and 680. 4:52. the annual list of the most dangerous toys is out. we'll show you which is items have the distinction this year.
