week. sometimes two or three times a day. recorders neighbors say the side-showers literally take over the intersection of alhambra valley road and bear creek road at all times of the day and night.

dollars. >> reporter: some are skeptical but many hopes the bumps bring some peace back to what should be a serene area. >> i hope it stops it. i hope it makes it so that they can't come out here and do that. >> reporter: and we are back here live now. these markers were just put in within the last week. this is the first time that they have been used to curbside shows anywhere in the bay area. the county says if they're successful, they will start using them in other spots in the county. reporting live in contra costa county, jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. in palo alto, an intruder breaks into a woman's apartment. police are looking for this man. it happened sunday at 4:00 a.m. on el camino real near page mill road. the man was wearing gloves and holding a flashlight when he entered the woman's bedroom. he sat on the bed next to her and started talking to her. the woman ran out of the room to
find her roommate. the suspect ran away. turning now to our weather. spring showers arrived right on cue. it's the first day of spring. we saw some rain this morning and some sun. a live look at san jose where we see some clouds now her geoff meteorologist jeff ranieri is tracking the next round of rain headed our way. jeff? >> it looks like we'll get a little bit of a break between storm systems, a little bit of good news for you. you can see those totals, 65/100ths in santa rosa, san jose. concord picking up 3/10 thchlthn inch. some snow showers on highway 50 will continue to linger. the wider view shows we have dried out, just a slight chance of a hit or miss shower through the next 48 hours. our next chance of consistent rainfall will start to arrive friday morning at 8:30.

home security cameras, most have never been punished. this woman says she's been victimized twice and so have neighbors. she's rooting for assembly bill 1210, which increases the punishment for package thefts. they says thieves these days are so brazen. >> the woman who came and took me stuff actually came up to my porch, sat down, opened the box, made sure she wanted what was in it, then put it in her backpack and walked away. >> reporter: the bill offered by jeff rosen and proposed by evan lowe would give police officers a right to give jail time up to three years. >> when you take something off of someone's front doorstep, li their house, that's a violation of someone's sense of self and there's also quite a potential for violence. >> reporter: the san jose police chief supports the bill. so do frustrated neighborhood
associations. >> i get e-mails probably every week, can you check your security cameras, we had somebody come through and they'll just pick them off one after another. >> reporter: now, besides these security cameras, people also remind homeowners that it's a good idea to let carriers know where you want the packages left, they don't have to be left in full view. the public safety committee is expected to start talking about this bill at the end of this week. one of the things they'll be discussing is how all this extra jail time will affect overcrowded jails. live in san jose, robert handa, nbc bay area news. >> a lot to discuss, thank you, redwood city police officers will not face charges after shooting and killing a teacher. last december a palo alto middle schoolteacher was killed in his backyard. today the san mateo county district attorney wrapped up his investigation, saying the two officers did nothing wrong. hart, who had two young children including a newborn baby, was reportedly suicidal. police say he cut himself with a

but he says that never translated into a boost in business. in fact he says sales are down 40%. his customers are changing too. >> our old customer base would come in and buy 50 and $100 baskets, shopping carts. and the new younger, single person customer is much more a 10 or $15 customer. >> reporter: the market started in 1974 as a drive-through dairy. many customers consider it a silicon valley landmark, known for its plentiful produce, croissants and cheese. but bonnie rogers says it's the people who work here she'll miss the most. >> i'm heartbroken. i've been shopping here all the time for the last 30 years. it's just hard to see it go. >> reporter: owner steve rasmussen says he has already sold this property to a developer. he says for 45 years, he has
connected with the community through cheese. so he's hoping that maybe he can do some kind of smaller cheese business in the future. but in the meantime i can tell you that a lot of customers here are snapping up all the international cheeses, including myself. reporting live in mountain view, marianne favro, nbc bay area news. >> good thinking, marianne. it is one of the largest stores in san jose's west gate mall but walmart is now closing its neighborhood market there. the company says the store was not doing well. 83 employees will have to transfer to another store or find another job. the store will close on april 19th. up next here at which ones in san francisco could be off-limits to cars. p that could soon end. a major victory in the battle to get rid of those annoying robocalls. one storm down, several more chances ahead. we'll take you right through the hour by hour forecast of our

buses and taxis on the whole street. >> it's time to make them all red carpet, maybe just for peak hours, maybe for the entire service. >> reporter: he says if there are more efficient buses, there could be fewer cars and fewer dangers on the seat, especially following the death of the bicyclist on howard street. this man worries about drivers. >> they drive bonkers sometimes. that could prevent more accidents and whatnot. >> reporter: we have heard and received reports that people are driving in the red transit only lanes but we underster have bee. he says he wants to look at other streets where it wouldn't have a big impact on traffic. >> that would make it ten times worse. >> reporter: now, we're told with this idea there would be allowances for cross traffic and
deliveries. right now taxis can use them, also drivers making a turn. a lot to work out, it's still in the idea face. sfmta is looking into it but drivers we spoke with overwhelmingly said no. live in san francisco, christie smith, nbc bay area news. >> christie, thank you. there's always something new on b.a.r.t. this time it's some personal grooming. you ready for it? a guy wearing the jacket and the hoodie right there, plugging in an electric trimmer and started to, well, shave his head. this is on the millbrae line. it doesn't look like anyone was bothered here. the woman who shot the video just wanted to share it because it's certainly something we don't see every day. college students in berkeley know they can sometimes be targeted by thieves. so some want to carry stun guns to protect themselves. uc berkeley police say they got a call the night of march 8th that someone was carrying a stun gun on campus. stun guns are not just banned on campus, they're banned in the city of berkeley.
