6:31 am
down why the landlords have filed a lawsuit. >> reporter: kenny, the california apartment association or caa wants to overturn measure v one day before it's set to take effect. mountain view voters approved measure v by 53.4% in november. but the caa filed a lawsuit challenging the new law and wants to get a temporary restraining order. the measure limits the annual rent increases to consumer price index percentages, which is 2 to 5%, and prohibit evictions without just caught for multi-family rental units built before february 1, 1995. the caa is also attacking the city order analysis that rolls back rents to october 2015 levels. measure v hasn't received a lot of support among elected leaders. six out of seven council members oppose the measure. and instead they backed a milder alternative. a former san francisco supervisor who drafted the first rent control law in 1979 still believes rent control is needed. >> i still am of the opinion that so much depends on good
6:32 am
relationships between the landlords and the tenants. not all landlords and tenants are bad. there are some very good ones. >> reporter: city leaders must decide whether to defend the law. if upheld the city council would establish a committee to set rent and regulations. protestors hope the city attorney will oppose the row strange order. live in the newsroom, lisa chan, kpix 5. you won't be seeing any more self-driving ubers on the roads in san francisco. at least for now. the dmv officially revoked the registrations of the company's 16 driverless vehicles. uber started using them last week but got in trouble with no permit. the ceo says they don't need one but the mayor of san francisco said it was putting other people in danger. >> he thought that he was still being safe. i think that, you know, i said, you know, that's what dmv is there for, and you better comply or we'll be
6:33 am
working collaboratively with our attorney general and the dmv to get that compliance. on the same day the company debuted the cars, one of them was caught on camera running a red light. it's unclear when and if the uber plans to apply for the permit. state says it only takes about 72 hours to process. muni service could be affected again today as an unprecedented number of drivers are calling out sick. the agency says there was unexpected spike in the sick calls on monday. 74 operators or about 10% of all operators called in sick. the problem isn't much better. 51 called in sick on tuesday and 48 were out yesterday. the spike in sick calls led muni to consolidate some services. all right. which brings to us roqui. let's get a check on our roads this morning at 6:33. >> thank you, anne. we'll do that. let's start with highway 4. how's it looking now heading out into the antioch pittsburg area? not too bad. you're moving at 30 miles per hour in the pittsburg area so
6:34 am
from hillcrest avenue to highway 242, that's just a quick 19-minute drive. moving down to the altamont pass traffic coming off 205 you're moving at 41 miles per hour and then you get into a crawl at 14 miles per hour once you hit north flynn road so north tracy boulevard over 580 westbound to the altamont pass will take 30 minutes. traveling into the dublin interchange here's a live look at that. altamont pass to 680, 16 minutes. 880 to 101 will take 17 to 20 minutes. and then of course, we have the bay bridge toll plaza headed into downtown san francisco, so from the maze to downtown, that will be a 21-minute drive. that traffic is backing up into the maze. all right. heading over to mass transit, bart, ace train, muni and caltrain are all on time. so if you want to avoid the roads, that's a good alternate. julie? >> thanks, roqui. we are off to a chilly start this morning. temperatures below freezing for some spots thanks in part to
6:35 am
this, clear skies to start the day. we will see increasing clouds -- what a beautiful shot there. of the bay bridge this morning as we await sunrise. temperatures down to 3 2 degrees in santa rosa, 47 for oakland and san francisco. definitely cooler than this time yesterday. we do have another "spare the air" day in effect for the north bay moderate air quality for everyone else today. and a look at your travel forecast. a lot of folks heading out to visit family. sfo mainly clear, so no weather- related issues here. we will see after the chilly start temperatures warming up in the mid-50s around the bay today. now, elsewhere your major hubs, atlanta, chicago, houston, new york, all looking at mild weather today. not going to see any significant weather related issues there, although can't promise no delays. futurecast showing big changes here locally as the front moves through overnight and early tomorrow morning. here we are at 6 a.m. friday morning this time tomorrow we are definitely going to be seeing rain on the
6:36 am
radar on hi-def doppler. some of the heaviest rain and the highest winds at this hour tomorrow. once the front passes through, we'll continue to see scattered showers behind the front. a winter storm warning in effect for friday and for saturday. we are talking gusty winds snow levels down to around 3500 feet. we could see three to eight inches likely going to see a little snow below that, as well. and certainly plenty of snow up at those higher elevations. so all in all, tomorrow is going to be a wet one, dry today cooler. rain saturday. dry out christmas eve and christmas. more on that coming up. restrictions at parking lots at the golden gate bridge for the holiday season. the north and south ends of the bridge will be closed daily between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. from this friday, tomorrow, to monday, january 2. you want to see views of the bridge you will have to take a tour bus or taxi that can drop you off at the welcome center and vista

in his recent city hall inauguration, tran said that, quote, if there's anyone who still questions, then tonight is your answer. that line is one of several tran used to say what obama said in his 2008 victory speech. tran said that since the copied lines were so recognizable, he wasn't trying to be deceptive. >> you know, i didn't do it to copy it, you know? that's very obvious. for me, it was a special opportunity to carry out president obama's "legacy." >> we showed a video of tran and obama's speeches to the council member tran beat for mayor. she said that an apology isn't necessary but that tran owes obama credit for the language. 6:38. and some holiday wishes are about to come true. sacred heart is giving thousands of toys to families who need a little help. >> but there's still time to help because they still need more gifts. kpix 5's maria medina is live inside the big toy room with details on how to get involved.
