4:34 am
need a testing permit to launch self-driving cars in san francisco. we don't believe we do." the dmv disagreed and shut the program down. as for the red light incident, uber says this car was not part of its driverless pilot program that there was a driver and he has been disciplined and essentially that the incident makes uber's entire case about autonomous vehicles. this is why we believe so much in make the roads safer by building self-driving ubers. they are using it to bolster their point that we shouldn't have human drivers. >> exactly. they don't care. it was too early to put those cars on the road. whether or not it was a driver or not. somebody needs to be held accountable for this. >> reporter: joe vazquez, kpix 5. >> so far uber hasn't responded to the order to pull the self- driving cars from the streets. this morning, officials in pacifica are announcing a plan to demolish all of these homes perched on a crumbling cliffside. the city says the buildings' owner neglected the properties.

4:37 am
about -- you're actually moving pretty well through there and on north flynn road at 40 miles per hour. there's a five-car crash in lathrop on highway 5 heading into tracy so this could affect your morning commute from north tracy boulevard along 580 westbound to the altamont pass that will take you a quick 17 minutes. so not the worst it could be along the pass right now. moving over to the san ramon- dublin area for roadwork on southbound 680 between alcosta and 580, that will be out there until 5 a.m. or so. and a live look at the nimitz freeway looking good in both directions so far on 880 northbound from 238 in san leandro to the maze, that will take you 16 minutes. and then make sure you keep both hands on the wheel and drive slowly and carefully across the span of the bay bridge, there is a high wind advisory right now. i'll send it to you. >> all right, roqui. thank you. some of donald trump's sharpest critics paid him a visit in new york. at least a does of the biggest power players -- a dozen of the biggest power players in tech stopped die trump tower. kpix 5's betty yu reports. >> reporter: president-elect donald trump kicked off the

4:39 am
informative and productive and said the group talked about critical matters related to job creation and innovation. noticeably missing from the meeting was twitter's ceo jack dorsey who was not invited. tech expert russell hancock is head of joint venture silicon valley. >> there's irony there. on the other hand, you can't fit all of tech around a small table in a conference room in manhattan. and let's remember, twitter is not a profitable company. unlike the other companies that were around the table. >> reporter: there's been bad blood between twitter and the trump team. during his campaign, trump officials wanted the company to create a custom emoji to go with his nickname for hillary clinton, "crooked hillary." but the company did not agree. there is no proof that this had anything to do with twitter's absence today. in san jose, betty yu, kpix 5. >> and a lot of money came through the doors of trump tower. the executives who attended the

4:42 am
dollars to some lucky russian. >> reporter: yahoo is advising users to not only change their passwords and security questions, but look at any emails from yahoo carefully. this is a time when cyber criminals could take advantage by masquerading as the internet giant. hena daniels, cbs news. >> yahoo stays will never send an email that prompts users to click on a link or download an attachment. the fbi says it's working closely with yahoo to investigate this hack. time now is 4:42. the same storm expected to dump rain on us later today has already hit parts of oregon. the mess that it's leaving behind. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
