4:16 pm
at an event in our area today some say we'll be able to take our hands off the wheel sooner than you might think. transportation reporter adam tuss was at that event and joins us live from arlington. what's the prediction for where the cars might be going hands-free. >> reporter: jim, think about this, how about two years from now? they were saying 2017 model cars are going to start having technology where you can set a button, take your hands off the wheel and take your feet off the pedals and just sit there and let the car do the driving for you. that would be on the highway. on a highway lane, not local traffic, but still, two years away from that becoming a reality and there's a race to get that kind of technology in cars right now. >> adam, there are also technologies being developed that go beyond the car, right? one case is with highway workers? >> reporter: that's right. they're looking for ways to make everything safer.
4:17 pm
and also what's going on outside the car. highway workers are wearing vests that are connected to cars wirelessly. so if a highway worker is getting too close to a lane of traffic and the car is getting too close then the two can communicate with one another to let the other know you're too close or you need to move over and also cars are able to recognize when there is a police vehicle or emergency vehicle stopped in the lane and the car can move over for you, all incredibly high-tech stuff that's being worked on right now and developed and stuff that was tested on the 95 express lane. >> wow. adam, isn't human factor always going to be an issue? >> reporter: i think there's no way to rule that out, and one of the questions that was asked at the event today, won't these technologies make us just complacent and almost lazy in a way and not paying attention to the car? >> these technologies are built to make ing things safer and you'll always have to pay attention and it's not like you
4:18 pm
can program it in and you ulz have to pay attention to know that you're truly safe and you'll have to watch out for the other drivers on the road and that will always be a challenge. >> stuff that boggles the mind. transportation reporter adam tuss. thank you very much. getting back to drivers behind the wheel there are big plans to improve the traffic flow on i-66 outside of the beltway. it's a chance for you to hear details about the plan and voice your own opinion. the virginia department of transportation will hold a series of public meetings over the next three days and the first one takes place tonight at 6:30 at oakton high school in vienna. one idea is rebuilding i-66 between the beltway and hay market. under that plan, there would be three regular lanes and two high occupancy and hot lanes in each direction. mother nature handed some residents in northwest pennsylvania an early snowfall. check it out. enough snow to coat the grass and cover trees, too.
4:19 pm
some areas received as much as five inches. snow weighed down weak tree limbs that fell on to power lines causing minor power outages and the public works department said despite slick spots they had no plans to start salting until temperatures get colder. now your storm team 4 forecast. >> believe it or not, we even had some snowflakes in parts of our area during the day yesterday and some areas around damascus and carol county and reported snowflakes and we talked about grapple before. none of that around our region. plenty of blue skies and bright sunshine and temperatures, though, still very cool around 55 degrees and winds out of the south at ten miles per hour and it will be very cool. 58 in fredericksburg, and 57 in winchester and 56 degrees coming over toward huntington. storm team 4 radar, we have almost no chance for rain in the

next seven days as far as the forecast is concerned and we have a chance next sunday and monday and that is it. 52 in new york, so you can see where the cool air is. 81 in omaha and 80 in wichita and 74, memphis and that's the kind of warm air that will be moving in over the next couple of days and not tonight. overnight low temperatures tonight will still be quite chilly and 43 in d.c. and 37 in culpeper and 39 toward fredericksburg. you'll need the coats once again tomorrow and 7:00, so the kids can hit the bus stop and tomorrow is one of those days when you put the coats on early and you take them off during the afternoon because we will get plenty of sun and 67 degrees in most of the area and up to 69 for the high after that. 72 back toward winchester and it will be warmer as we have the warm air pushing in from the west and that will maintain itself as we make our way into the next couple of days, too. how about these temperatures
4:21 pm
over the next few days, tomorrow, 69 and 72 on your wednesday and 76 on your thursday and 63 on friday and we have another cool front that will cool things down thursday into friday, but we're not talking 30s or 20s anymore and we're not talking highs in the 50s. you get to 63. 63 with sunshine and we'll take that. how about the 70s? i'm excited about that. >> thank you, doug. we are, too. we're still following several developing stories this afternoon. kris jenner opening up about lamar odom's condition and who the star is reportedly talking with and what he's doing in the hospital. >> plus a look inside the kennedy center honors for an kennedy center honors for an original king of comedy.

"access hollywood" billy bush spoke to his former mother-in-law. >> she says lamar is improving little by little and he's not walking around. some of the reports would lead you to think he was leading a marching band. they were just all over the place. >> he did try to stand and still very weak and completely off all tubes and then it was ventilator and breathing mask and now off all tubes. khloe has not left his side.
4:26 pm
he's said a few word, but kris says they're very hopeful and they continue to pray. there is a possible move to an l.a. hospital in the next 48 hours or so, so he's doing much, much better. >> billy bush. we understand that maybe kim kardashian was by his side, too? >> kim went up for the weekend and they all went back up on friday. remember, kris was there wednesday and they came back home and kendall jenner flew in so they've all been up there. kendall, mom, kourtney and kim, they've all been up there. people are posting all kinds of nice things and one of them, justin bieber put up something nice looking up to lamar odom, and i say that only because we have a very big interview, the interview with justin bieber. our exclusive tonight on "access hollywood." don't miss it. we talk about everything, and i mean everything. >> we look forward to seeing that, too. thanks so much.

4:31 pm

"ebony" magazine has released
4:33 pm
its november cover. fans of "the cosby show" and in particular, whr's troy johnson is here with today's talk about town. it features a vintage photo of the show under shattered glass and the cliffhanger, can the cosby show survive and should it? >> you're getting a lot of reaction. people tell me they felt like members of the huxtable family when the tv show was on. they went off to school. denise, when "a different world" went on and the show lives on in re-runs. so there is a real emotional connection to the tv show and that's why people are conflicted. they're conflicted with the tv father that they saw that made all of the right moves and influenced people in the right way and juxtaposed with all of the accusations that bill cosby is going through now. it's really interesting. there are folks that i talked to, plenty of folks on social media that are also weighing in on this, and it really has a real visceral answer from both
4:34 pm
sides of the equation. it's a situation where art imitates life and it's the life that many black americans wanted to have. i talked to a listener in laurel who is disappointed with this "ebony" cover and she said the show was about a whole lot more than bill cosby. >> i'm a real fan of the show, i grew up with it and still wish it was on the air and not because of mr. cosby, but because of these characters on the show. they truly speak to what's missing on tv today. >> a lot of folks agree with her and does the removing of the show from the air leave a void who can be and isn't being filled because it was the only show of its kind. >> right. it feels that way. nicki made that point to me when we spoke. there's nothing on television that comes close to the kind of program that the cosby show and "a different world" was. >> the younger generation now really isn't into that kind of programming. maybe we have come to a point
4:35 pm
where, as she says, we're kind of more influenced by reality television and such over the top content on television shows that, you know, a show like the cosby show wouldn't exist right now. >> ebony did release a statement to e! news that says the cover story focuses on an urgent and provocative conversation that is happening and is happening within the black community. whether or not "ebony" published this photo or picture, people are having this conversation about his legacy and the legacy of his work. >> yeah. they are because this was a huge television show, not just for black america and for everyone. it is a show that you would not miss. must-see television, and with that, a lot of people feel like bill cosby transcended that television character of dr. huxtable. it gave him license to have conversations in the black community about failing schools and communities that have been struggling and that and people believed it.
4:36 pm
they -- i shouldn't say bought into, but they definitely felt that bill cosby could speak to those things because those were the kind of images he was pror thaiing, a successful black community on his television show. >> and images that many felt needed to be out there. thank you, troy. >> thank you. >> thank you both. school bus safety experts are putting out a message today that some may find surprise. it's national school bus safety week and we've all scene disturbing videos of drivers ignoring school bus stops and lights and it is the safest way to get kids to and from the schools. >> they're the big, yellow vehicles. they're conspicuous. they're easy to see and they have all of the kids up high out of the crash zone. >> experts say the bigger problem, other drivers on the road who in a recent survey committed more than 78,000 illegal bus passing violations in a single day. a federal appeals court just
4:37 pm
upheld key parts of the strictest gun control laws in the country. the court will allow new york and connecticut to ban semiautomatic weapons and large-capacity magazines and they ruled against firearms dealers who said the ban violated their second amendment rights, however the appeals court struck down the provision on road limits and new york and connecticut gun laws were in newtown, connecticut. >> an alert if you're an online shopper. why some product reviews may be outright lies and how amazon is trying to combat that problem. oprah's big bet on weight watchers. her new deal with the famed diet her new deal with the famed diet company

4:46 pm
capitol hill on thursday when she testifies before the republican-run house committee on benghazi, and the feeling is that joe biden would not want to be seen reacting to whatever hillary clinton does in that committee and seeming like he's jumping in to save democrats because which is what he fears it will look like she fell short in what's sure to be a showdown over benghazi and her emails. >> no question joe biden would like to be president, he's run twice before, but people who know the bidens say joe biden feels great about his seven years at the white house, whereas he pulled barack obama to the right and he would not think about it running for a third time. he wouldn't think about a third run if bo biden had not died and it was joe who reportedly leaked that bo asked his dad to run. >> steve, the benghazi showdown
4:47 pm
not withstanding. when does the vice president absolutely have to decide in order to make a viable run for the nomination. >> i think, pat, the answer is soon. >> you need a big staff, not just nationally, but guessing joe biden if he runs would headquarter his staff and he'll have a staff up in iowa, new hampshire and south carolina, nevada and all of the early primary states and maybe more importantly, he's got to round up donors and big and small and get his internet operation up and he's got to raise tens of millions of dollars and all of the same things that hillary rodham clinton has already done. a top biden aid and maybe the closest aid to the vice president emailed supporters and said if joe runs we're going to need your support yesterday. coming up at 6:00, the republicans, we have new poll numbers and it's surprising and good news for the retired dr. ben carson.
4:48 pm

4:51 pm
they're wanting to talk to other passengers who apparently left the airport before the fbi could get there, but a really bizarre account of what happened mid-air and we are not sure exactly what was said between the two or if it was a full-on choke or what it was, but the account is that. that a woman reclined her seat and the man behind her started to choke her and then the plane turned around, jim? >> wow. jacob, thank you. nbc "nightly news" with lester holt will have more coming up at 7:00 right after news 4 at 6:00. it is slow going for ship traffic on the houston ship channel as crews work to clear a sunken barge. the barge along with a partially submerged towing vessel are near the kinder morgan ship dock in galena park and all passing ship traffic was shut down after the accident and one lane of traffic has since been reopened and no one was onboard the ship when it started to sink and no injuries have been reported. remember the texas teenager
