7:03 am
by police. that's great news. every available officer was out patrolling the streets. and in new york times square an estimated one million people watched the countdown. did some kissing out there, of course. tradition. they watched that ball drop. the huge crowd was surrounded by extremely tight security. thousands of police officers, uniformed and undercover, were there to keep everybody safe. the streets were filled with confetti. more than a ton of it was dropped to celebrate new year's eve. probably still cleaning up right now. the performers included carrie underwood and demi lovato. on the left of your screen, that is a celebration in old sacramento. 9:00 last night the very same time as the ball was dropping in new york city. now, in the middle of your screen, that's las vegas.
7:04 am
thousands of people from all over the country head for vegas for their new year's party every year. and on the right that incredible shot, the fireworks show in boston. back here in the bay area, the clean-up in san francisco after last night's big new year's celebration, it started right away. as soon as the fireworks ended, the clean-up crews went right to work. ktvu fox 2's christien kafton on the waterfront. how does it look out there right now? >> reporter: looking pretty good. we have moved in the last hour. we were by powell street last hour. now we're down here by the water front. you can see behind me, some of the barricades left over. this is where party central essentially was last night. hundreds of thousands of people gathering around this area, and now the big clean-up after last night's big celebration. now, we watched earlier today as the barricades were loaded up onto flatbed trucks making their way around the city. we have seen fleets of street
7:05 am
cleaners out patrolling the streets and a lot of trash out on the streets. signs of the hundreds of thousands of people who flooded into san francisco for last night's new year's eve fireworks show. when we showed up in the city at around 5:30 this morning we still found a few die-hards who were out from last night. they say that they are already making big plans for 2016. but they say they had a great time ringing in the new year. >> it was kind of a little crazy, but, you know, we went from club to club. it was just very exciting. >> reporter: one of the big draws, of course, that fireworks show last night. hundreds of thousands of people turned out on the waterfront to watch the 15-minute show despite the cold temperature. san francisco police out in force last night making sure the celebrations did not get out of hand. one more note. as i drove in this morning to
7:06 am
work, i noticed a couple of, we'll say, some less than perfect drivers out there. one of our photographers even called 911 twice to report drivers that he suspected of being drunk. so we will look for a little bit more information from chp later today to find out how many duis they had, how many pull-overs last night. the take home for people to party safe and bring in the new year the right way, right, guys? >> we hope everybody is careful and safe out there. thank you. well, for 127 years the rose parade in pasadena has delighted audiences from all over the country. it's about to get underway once again. just about less than an hour. while tradition holds steady, ktvu's brian flores joins us with the unprecedented thing we will see this year. >> reporter: the amount of security as well as the rose bowl game. there will be lots of it. something we have never seen from this. but not just from local police, but federal agencies. they are there to keep people
7:07 am
safe and to have a good time. talking about the parade as we speak, crews are putting in those finishing touches to floats and several of the bands. floats are getting ready to line up along the parade route, which, by the way, in case you didn't know, is five and a half miles long. imagine walking for that long in a parade route. this year's theme, by the way, is find your adventure, which coincides with the centennial celebration of our country's national parks. but it takes an estimated 80,000 combined hours of hundreds of volunteers to put together 44 floats for today it. it's quite a task for several people who camped out last night, and some for days, to a spot along pasadena's infamous colorado boulevard. >> we will be showing movies. we got a screen and everything. we are doing everything. we got water. we got barbecue pits. >> i want to hang out with them next year. the rose parade is adding an unprecedented level of security as we mentioned following the santa barbara shooting. these measures include federal agencies, as we mentioned, as
7:08 am
well as armed tactical rapid response teams, bomb-sniffing dogs, and even radiation detection devices. of course, several surveillance cameras. now, no credible threat has been issued, but authorities are not taking any chances. on a lighter note, there are a few bay area connections, including stanford's band playing this morning. of course, team playing in the rose bowl later today. also saratoga's band and color guard will be performing at the parade as well. talking about our people from the broadcasting industry, bob eubanks, stephanie edwards. i mean, i grew up watching them on tv. >> yeah. >> this is the last year they will be doing it. >> it is? >> yeah. they have been doing it, i think, 38 for stephanie, 35 for -- >> a lot of years. and always very good. >> very good. >> people might be interested in the job, right? they can contact them? let them know. >> we have to point out, brian, your high school band. >> oh, yeah. oh, yeah. i am so proud of these guys.

9:00 their time, right? this was times square. about a million people headed out to watch the ball drop. the huge crowds surrounded by extremely tight security, though, as well. thousands of police officers, uniformed and undercover, were there to keep everybody safe. everybody looks happy in that shot. >> well, yeah. >> streets filled with confetti. more than a ton was dropped celebrate new year's eve. the performers included carrie underwood and demi lovato. and some of the other new year's eve celebrations. take a look on the left of your screen. this is a celebration in old sacramento. they did a good job. started at 9:00 last night. same time as the ball was being dropped in new york city. now, in the middle of your screen, that's las vegas. thousands of people from all over the nation head for vegas for the new year's party there every year. and on the right of your screen, just dramatic fireworks show. that's in boston, massachusetts. well, back here in the bay area the clean-up in san francisco, after last night's big new year's celebration, it
8:05 am
started right away as soon as the fireworks ended. the clean-up crews went right to work. ktvu fox 2's christien kafton has been out since early this morning. you are in north beach. how are things looking out there this morning? >> reporter: yeah, dave, you know you have been tracking our progress. we started at powell street. we are no north beach. you can see folks hard at work cleaning up. collecting barricades after last night's big celebration here in san francisco. they got into san francisco this morning and we watched as barricades were loaded up on flatbed trucks. we have also seen a fleet of street cleaners out patrolling the streets this morning. a lot of trash and mess out there after last night's big celebration. signs of the hundreds of thousands of people who flooded into the city for new year's eve celebrations and the fireworks show. now, we found people this morning who are also expressing their hopes for the new year. >> hope for a peaceful world. more peaceful world this year.
8:06 am
definitely. >> my new year's resolution is going to be kinder and nicer to people. >> reporter: the fireworks show last night, of course, was the big draw. hundreds of thousands of people turned out on the waterfront to watch the 15-minute show despite the cold temperatures. san francisco police also out in force making sure the celebrants did not get out of hand. back to the live shot, this crew has cleared up this area on broadway. they are making their way through the city. happy new year, one of the major concerns, we noticed this morning coming in and driving around on the streets that there were some drivers out there who appeared to be intoxicated. we will be checking in with chp through the day to get an update on how many duis there were last night. the take home message is everybody wants a safe and happy 2016. >> yeah, we all want that. the gentleman behind you
8:07 am
working hard. we want to praise them, too. they are doing a great job cleaning up in san francisco. all right. >> reporter: absolutely. great work out here. >> they are moving fast, too. happy new year to them. time is 8:07. well, if you plan to ride bart today be ready. you are going to pay more. today bart fares go up almost 3.5%. so, for example, if you commute between walnut creek and downtown san francisco you will have to pay about 15 cents more each way. and if you go to sfo it will cost an extra 35 cents. it's part of bart's plan. they raised fares every other year to help pay for new train cars and also maintenance. we are learning about a crash that happened about 90 minutes ago on interstate 80 in fairfield. it took the life of a pedestrian. the highway patrol says a car hit and killed a person eastbound interstate 80. this is at the green valley road off-ramp. it's not clear right now what
8:08 am
that person was doing, walking on the freeway. but officers are investigating what happened. no names have been released. time is 8:07. a vigil set for noontime today at the fruitvale bart station marking the seventh anniversary of the shooting death the oscar grant. hundreds of supporters gathered at a similar vigil last year. now, attending today's rally will be family members and close friends of oscar grant. also members of the black lives matter movement. he was shot to death at the fruitvale bart station by then bart police officer johannes mezly on january 1, 2009. he was released from jail after serving 11 months of a two year prison sentence. san francisco's police chief is asking the u.s. department of justice to review the city's police policies and training. the chief is also asking the community oriented policing office for advice on how
8:09 am
officers should respond to people who are armed with knives. now, this follows a deadly december 2nd officer involved fatal shooting of mario woods. a stabbing suspect who was holding a knife at the time. the video of five officers shooting him several times led to protests and demands for the chief to resign. there is word president obama plans to announce a new executive action on gun control shortly after he comes back to the white house next week from his vacation in hawaii. the president talked about the issue in his weekly address released earlier this morning. >> a few months ago i directed my team at the white house to look into any new actions i can take to help reduce gun violence. and on monday i will meet with our attorney general, loretta lynch, to discuss our options because i get too many letters from parents and teachers and kids to sit around and do nothing. >> the sources who are familiar with the president's proposal say his executive action will
8:10 am
include requiring an expanded number of smaller gun dealers to be licensed. therefore, be required to conduct background checks. now, this would not close the so-called gun show loophole, but it would narrow. the executive action is also expected to impose tougher controls for reporting guns that are lost or stolen. well, at 8:10 a lot of us have no doubt made resolutions as this brand new year begins. president obama is no expectation. doug luzader looks at how the president's 2016 pledges could affect all of us. >> reporter: beyond working on his golf game, which appears much improved in recent years, president obama has a lengthy list of resolutions for 2016 and he will finish this vacation and 2015 with just over one year to advance his vision for america. >> we are going to squeeze
8:11 am
every last ounce of progress that we can make when i had the privilege of -- as long as i have the privilege of hold this office. >> reporter: the other big goal for 2016, helping to defeat whatever republican ends up winning the gop nomination next year. >> more than tiger woods. >> reporter: especially if it's donald trump, who appears to really get under the president's skin. >> i think we will have a strong democratic nominee. i think that democratic nominee will win. i think i will have a democratic successor and i will campaign hard to make that happen. >> reporter: for starters, it would be essential to keeping the president's agenda intact in coming years. therein lies the delicate balancing act for the president in 2016 pushing items like gun control, the trans pacific trade deal, and closing the prison at guantanamo bay. things that could be controversial while at the same time making sure he doesn't alienate potential independent and democratic voters come november. >> if he is serious about
8:12 am
electing the democratic nominee, he is going to have to find ways to be less controversial and to you a peel to a broader section of the public. can he do it? i don't know. >> reporter: and no one really knows at this point. but it's clear that as his vacation winds to a close this weekend, the president will be looking ahead to a new year that could well determine what his legacy will be. 8:12 is the time now. the biggest party of new year's day. the rose parade is getting underway in pasadena right now. we will tell you about the strict security measures in place in the wake of the santa barbara shootings. just to keep people safe. first, a lawsuit over spilled coffee. up next, the incident that has a bay area woman suing burger king. and we want to take a look at the roads outside. that's all we can see is the roads because there are very few cars, and that's a great thing. it's the very first day of
8:13 am
january 2016. this is right by the bay bridge toll plaza. absolutely no traffic. just wanted to show it to you. cool dry weather in place for the first day of 2016. i am tracking some changes though in the way of wet weather. what you can expect for today and what the wet weather will arrive coming up.

8:35 am
effect. ktvu fox 2's alex savidge joining us live now. tell us some of the changes. >> reporter: the governor signed more than 700 bills into law last year, and many will have an impact on workers here in our state. among other things, the minimum wage, it will bump up to $10 an hour today. it had been nine. that's a step up for some workers, although it may not have such a big impact in the bay area because several large cities like oakland and san francisco, they had set their minimum wage already at $12 an hour. now, a separate law, it will allow women to challenge gender-based wage gaps. this legislation requires employers to prove that a man's higher pay for similar work is not based on gender. lawmakers this year also focused on gun control. one piece of legislation, it was prompted by a shooting rampage at uc santa barbara back in
8:36 am
2014 that left six people dead. this new law allows family members to ask a judge to take away firearms from a relative who appears to pose a threat. now, another law dealing with gun control extends a ban on concealed weapons at schools and community colleges removing an exemption for those with concealed carry permits. also, starting in 2016 it will be a whole lot easier to get rid of that old mattress. a new law makes california just the second state in the nation to set up a recycling program for used mattresses and box springs. and you can find collection sites by going to a website that's called bye-bye mattress dot-com. and, of course, the goal there is to try to get people to get rid of those old mattresses the right way as opposed to dumping them on the sides of the roads, as we often tend to see, dave. they are trying to deal with the problem that way and set up a
8:37 am
program here in california. >> right, right. all right. alex savidge, thank you for the update on these new laws. thank you. time is 8:36. starting today you are going to have to be at least 21 years old to buy a pack of cigarettes in some parts of the south bay. there is a new law. it changes the legal age to buy tobacco products and e-cigarettes from 18 to 21 in unincorporated santa clara county. stores in the area will be required, they have got to put up signs warning customers about this change. and if they violate the new law, those stores could be fined hundreds of dollars. they could also be suspended from selling tobacco products. as the new year began law enforcement agencies were busy. they were fanning out, looking for impaired drivers. now, from now through sunday the chp and other law enforcement officers, they are looking for impaired, reckless, or distracted drivers. they don't want a repeat of what happened last new year's. that's when 28 people died in
8:38 am
crashes in california, and more than 1,100 people were arrested for dui. one officer said he has seen firsthand too many deadly crashes. >> it takes a mental toll on you, absolutely. you have to understand and try to put yourself in the family's shoes. >> officials say there is no excuse at all for drinking and driving. also, many public transit agencies extended their hours for new year's eve and aaa offered free tows and rides through the tipsy tow program. san francisco police are looking for people caught on camera stealing several luxury cars from a car dealership. now, police say three men and one woman cut the lock to the main gate of the royal auto group on hayward street early wednesday morning. then they drilled through the lock on a door to where the keys to the cars are stored. they took some keys and they drove off in several high-end cars worth several hundreds of thousands of dollars.
8:39 am
a spokesman for the dealership says nothing like this has ever happened before. >> not in our 60-plus years of business have we ever had a vehicle stolen from our property that was in service. >> all together, seven cars were stolen. police described the three men and one woman as latino. it's not clear if the stolen cars belonged to the dealership or to some customers. time is 8:39. bay area grandmother accused of drowning her four-year-old grandson in a bathtub in fairfield did not enter a plea yesterday in her first court appearance. dawn rain hughes made a brief court appearance. she is charged with the murder of her four-year-old grandson. authorities haven't told us about any possible motive, but prosecutors say she may have an undisclosed mental problem. in court yesterday she wore a padded green vest designed to keep her from hurting herself. >> there does appear to be at least a partial mental health
8:40 am
aspect to this case. we will have to investigate that as well. >> police say she admitted that she intentionally drowned her grandson. she is going to be back in court next week. meantime, the contra costa county sheriff's department released new images to show you of a robbery and a beating in alamo. it shows two men at a gas station on danville boulevard early sunday morning. one wearing a black hoodie and black and white camouflage pants. the other has on a grey jacket with white sleeves. well, they both beat the store clerk and stole items from the store. if you have any information about these two men, call the police. people in a san francisco neighborhood will have a lot of cleaning up to do this new year's day after a water main break. it happened in a home near 41st avenue in the city's outer sunset neighborhood yesterday afternoon. only one home lost service, but that water did spread to several streets. traffic also slow going in that

area because crews had to dig up a portion of the road. and crews temporarily patched up that sinkhole in san francisco's noe valley, but the problem is far from fixed. that hole opened up between 24th and jersey streets yesterday after an 18-inch sewer line broke open. the crater is so deep that crews have delayed the repairs on that sewer line until tomorrow. once they get the proper safety equipment in they will be able to shore up that hole. but it is 10 feet. muni's j church line is still affected. there is a bus bridge to get people through that area. time is 8:41. super bowl 50 we know is headed for santa clara, but we don't know the fate of some youth soccer fields right next to levi stadium a last-ditch effort to keep the nfl away even though those fields are due to be taken over on monday. joined by frosty temps once again. a live look over san jose.
