so no big delays. the other direction into san francisco, this is the bay bridge toll plaza, this looks good, no road work at all and not seeing that near yerba buena island. >> and that is a similar story, both sides look good though between hayward and foster city and back out there, once again that road work we often see this time of the morning not there today, so all lanes are open, that is why the drive time looks really good, in fact all of your drive times in the east bay nice and quiet including the east shore, 19 minutes on westbound 80 from the carquinez bridge to the maze and if you are using mass transit today bart system-wide on time. that is your latest traffic, back to you guys. >> okay, thanks, liz, today could be the busiest day for the post office with less than two weeks and how until christmas the rush is on to get gifts out, if you are sending
something outside the u.s., today is the deadline for global express to get it there by the 25th, first class by the 20th and priority mail the 21st is your cut off and if you procrastinate you need to go with express and mail it on the 23rd. did you follow that? >> i have not. well, they have brought out a car that will sell in the 30,000 dollar and come out in 2013, compare that to the care which costs 20 thousand dollars and will debut next year. the company uba gets you where you are going by summoning drives through the smart phone, now they are getting bigger and they are partnering with two very traditional car brands.

growing for over 20% a month given our scale so the need for putting more drivers on the road is critical for us building our business. >> i think building them is a big part in that. >> she follows businesses like uber and has heard their critics like traditional taxi companies furious that companies like uber are stealing their passengers and are not classified as taxis, but tamm says brand new names like toyota and gm will take uber down a more mainstream road. >> that has got to get them some cache with drivers and regular every day joes who might have have thought about that before. >> they are rolling it out in six cities including san francisco. >> one of the holiday traditions is back, visitors
have already stocked flocking to christmas tree lane, flocking trees in palo alto, the spectacle there attracts thousands every year. >> i think it is great they are willing to let all of the kids stomp all over their yards to see the sleigh and all that the night before christmas which is certainly what our kids did and they will go through this effort for strangers, it is great really. >> she is really cradling that microphone isn't she? >> yes. >> you can see that there. and before they held that they held a toy drive there, some came dressed as santa or one of his elves. the time now is 9 minutes before 6:00, what they are doing. >> but first hollywood is remembering the life of an international star this morning. more on the legacy of peter o'toole.
