6:02 am
lower 60's before it gets breezy a and cooler this evening. that is your tuesday, forecast, so bob kelly, seeing some wet roadways, rain drops. >> rain drops are falling on 422, this morning. the here's where we are starting to see the beginning of that, rain coming into our viewing area, 422, right here near trooper road, it looks like cheerios on camera lens here. that will be the game changer, again, stepping out of the front door roads will be wet and we will have that spray and sue mentioned we have to put up with it for morning rush hour. live look downtown here, the vine street expressway, it looks like there is an accident here or something going on because we are lined up single fire trying to exit for 30th street station. up, up and delay on the burlington bristol bridge, traffic just starting to move again after an early bridge opening, tacony palmyra had an opening, also earlier this morning. possible weather delays at philly international today because of the rain. so make sure you check with
6:03 am
the airline and pack your patients going down there. and jackknife tractor trailer, southbound on the new jersey turnpike, right before exit number one. heading down to the delaware memorial head for 295, otherwise, mass transit, looking good with no delays. mike and alex, back over to you. 6:03 on a tuesday. >> we have learned if you ride new jersey transit the you better be prepared to be recorded. >> on some lines, yes. everything you say and do while riding certain trains being watched, it is raising concerns over privacy. we decided to slap steve keeley on the train. where are you now. >> reporter: we got on the train 30 seconds ago, and -- five seconds into it. >> we will need, am i on, mike. >> you're backup. >> okay. well, that is what you get with technology moving, but, no surprise, because they had big warning signs both on the train stations and here on the train but remember, you have
6:04 am
the right to remain silent and you may want to exercise that right if you ride new jersey transit's river line train because not only are lots of cameras watching your every move. i can see a couple cameras staring at me right new but now, new jersey transit, announced both on their signs, on their stops and stations and little signs here on the train that they have in the just video but audio recordings as well. the signs in english and spanish. so they are listening to you and your conversations too with this new audio surveillance in place. they say they did it because of all of the customers, you know, telling them that hey doing on more to make the trains more secure, and to increase their surveillance because of all of the phone robberies that they had recently. but still you've got the rights group, both american civil liberties union and rail passengers rights groups, feeling that eavesdropping and recording conversations is
6:05 am
basically a violation of everybody's right, and also a invasion of privacy. we will try to talk to some other folks, further up, to see if they want to give us their opinions but you can bet be in would be comfortable about having their private conversations recorded. mike, it raises practical question just on this one train alone, look a at all the of the people and seats, how could you possibly listen to every conversation going on and plus you must have somebody who can translate five different languages back there because remember like say if they were mentioning terrorism, the brussels a tax on a subway a few weeks ago those people spoke french, we have got spanish, eveningish, arab, russian, somebody in new jersey transit must be multi link what will or they must have an automatic translation machine somehow that would tell them if somebody is saying something that they need to listen to. it raises a lot of questions. you wonder if the signs are up there for a deterrent as well
6:06 am
for criminals, but they are warning you, watch what you say, that is for sure. >> well, wouldn't it be used if something happened, if there was an incident then we were go back and listen. i don't think anybody is setting in the room saying steve keeley is talking about bob kelly back at the station. >> but even still how long would they store the information. >> i don't know. >> at what point do you get a new recording. >> keep it the for a month and if something happens you go back, get the tape, look at it and listen to it. isn't that the purpose of the whole thing in case something does happen. >> we will stay on that. lets get to the other top stories. police investigating a latest homicide in the the overbrook section. a 25 year-old man was found shot in the chest, inside of a car in the 1600 block, of north redfelt street. police were called after the car was left running n word on suspects at this hour. philadelphia's mayor jim kenney's office now officially confirming the next fire commissioner. adam thiel will be officially appointed to day.

route, 476, right here near route one. roads are wet. we are starting to see the rain hit the windshield and wipers on intermittently. that is a game changer, this morning. we also have an accident here on the vine street expressway on the ramp from the vine expressway to 30th street station. that is the backup. there is the crash right here right at the bottom of the ram that puts new to 30th street station. that is causing a delay on the vine and schuylkill heading westbound into 30th street. otherwise we're in good shape from i-95 coming up from delaware. westbound on the schuylkill, reverse commute, bigger delay from center city out toward the blue route. with the weather coming our way we can have some weather delays down at philadelphia international. mike and alex, back over to you. 6:32. >> there was concerns over privacy for new jersey transit riders. >> yeah, they have a new surveillance system on some of these train lines. here's our idea, put steve keeley on a live train, that is moving, right, with
6:33 am
photographer chris fox. >> um-hmm. >> i think the people are more upset with our camera on there then the cameras in the ceiling, steve. >> reporter: no one we have met is upset about these audio systems and that is not a surprise because new jersey transit it says reason they installed these surveillance cameras was because riders were complaining there wasn't enough surveillance and security and they had so many people having their phones robbed from them while they rode new jersey transit. of course, amtrak has quiet cars which are supposed to be like libraries on the rails no loud talking, phones ringing our loud lap top tapping of the keyboard f you ride the river line like we are, you may want to keep quiet if you do not want big brother new jersey trans to it eavesdrop. look at the new signs they have up, this was on the palmyra station where we boarded, big notice signs, up now at all stops and stations, and on the trains themselves too video and audio systems in use it says.
6:34 am
light railcars are equipped with on board video and audio recording systems. that means new jersey transit is letting you know it can listen tour conversation with fellow passengers or whatever you may be saying, into your phone. and it was exactly a year ago, last april, when new jersey transit, put these on board video cameras on all of the trains after all of those complaints from ride their more surveillance was ready and needed to stop. if you hear how loud this train is or at least it is in my ears. it makes you wonder how can they hear anything. mike and alex, i have been looking for microphones and i do not see any but listen to the practical question i have, how would you possibly, record so many people getting on and off trains with the sound of the doors opening, so many people, hundreds of riders, just per train, and then thousands per day getting on and off trains, who knows what they are saying. you would need somebody in new jersey transit who can speak every language, possible to
6:35 am
even translate what people are saying if they were concerned about what they were saying, so, this does raise questions with the american civil liberties union. no surprise there. there is a group called new jersey rail riders group saying they were concern. saying we have a right to privacy. conversations are supposed to be even at least in public are supposed to be private, and nobody has a a right to record them. then the question i had, i talked to a man, tyrone harley, how will hear in the next hit, who raised a question so the recording of this stuff. how do they save it and how long are they saving it for. a all legitimate questions. we are now in trenton it looks like. so we will get off and come back down but we will hopefully talk to some more riders, when we see you at 7:00. >> thanks, steve. nice experiment there. 6:35. >> well, happening today philadelphia mayor jim kenney will formally appoint the next fire and prison commissioner. >> all right, dave, give south names we will to have pronounce, it is not thiel, it

6:37 am
alcohol problems and other issues there. it will be interesting to go see what the mayor says regarding overall prison reform efforts. he has touched on it in the past, of course, it is a national movement. right now, to reform prison systems the mayor will make the the announcement and introductions formally around 1:00 o'clock in the mayor's reception room at city hall and, of course, we will there been to cover it. back to you. >> all right, thanks for that. lesean mccoy will not face any disciplinary action, from the national football league. >> he was involve in the fight at recess lounge in february that injured two officers. so this is according to a tweet from iain rapport from the nfl network. he says that since the philadelphia district attorney decided not to press charges on mccoy for a lack of evidence, the nfl wouldn't want to pinnish ham either. d.a. says there is no question there was a fight but prosecutors say that from what they can tell the player was defending his friend. the brawl was over a bottle of
