4:26 pm
safe. >> that's the way to do it. >> first of all parents and players have to decide if the benefits of playing a sport like football outweigh the risks a possible injury. doctors say parents, coaches and referees all have to enforce the rules to keep kids safe. the american academy -- the american academy and radix -- of pediatrics says popper penalties for illegal hits. everyone to take an active role in keeping athletes safe. >> it is scary. teaching proper tackling, yes, but we need the officials to buy into this. some may be pushing the kids. it has to be a concerted effort across the board. >> delaying tackle football until a certain age may reduce injury at the time but could lead to more injuries later on because the kids are learning
4:27 pm
and practicing safe tackles. >> about 40% of injuries are going to happen if you are being tackled or tackling someone else. >> reporter: according to the academy of pediatrics the head and neck sustain a relatively small proportion of overall injuries but are more focused because they tend to become more severe and long-term effects. the most commonly injured body parts and football for all images are actually the knees, ankles, hands and back. doctors also recommend skilled athletic trainers be on the sidelines of all sports, not just football. there is also talk of expanding on tackling leagues so that athletes have more choices. >> form tackle, keba, i played football. you have to learn. we had been hearing about the defective takata airbags. now mercedes-benz is actually recalling their cars, and all
4:28 pm
of them because of faulty airbags that weren't made by takata. we will explain what is causing them to inflate spontaneously where the car hasn't even been in a crash.

the ballots have been counted and the sheriff was
4:31 pm
voted out by san franciscans. vicki hennessey 161% of the vote , almost double what he received. he has been in the national spotlight after the shooting and his handling of the sanctuary policy. tennessee -- hennessy is the first woman to be elected sheriff in san francisco. mayor ed lee was easily reelected. he had no major opposition. he had a low-key campaign. another victory for the mayor last night was the passage of proposition april which was -- a which was a bond measure. possible solutions for a problem that was felt bay area
4:32 pm
wide. >> they approved affordable housing but not [ indiscernible ] prop d and prop k also pass. prop f was voted down as well as prop i. we are taking 4 minutes during "the four on 2" to ask what is next. >> we welcome back peter [ name indiscernible ] with the community housing organizations. and also tim with the housing coalition. i know you were part -- a fan of the mission moratorium. is this the end of the mission
4:33 pm
district? >> no, it's not the end of the mission district or the fight. it's important to realize these issues don't go away when you win or lose on november 3. obviously what is driving the activism is the fact that the mission district is changing dramatically. there was a report released last week that showed latino populations dropped 27% in the last 10 years. the households with children have the flying -- declined. the patterns are dramatically changing the character and purpose of the mission. i can expect that the activists who put this on the ballot will push harder. i think we will have a new legislative opportunity. the frustration that a lot of us felt was this could be done legislatively last spring and we were very politically divided. here we are with a new chance to do policy interventions on the legislative level. >> boaters said no. that was the site that you were on.
4:34 pm
what is the solution -- the voters said no. what is the solution? that was the side that you were on. >> we were pretty happy with how the election came out but we are in a hiatus right now. the issues that were on the ballot yesterday have not been resolved and we will be looking at them again next year either in the june or november election. i think probably what we want to do is find common ground and see if we can do some of these things legislatively rather than the incredible time and expense for a ballot initiative campaign . i am not sure how productive that is. we have a lot of work to do to get at the housing affordability crisis. >> let's talk about proposition a which one pretty big, i believe 73% to 26%.
4:35 pm
this was a big bond issue. how do we make sure the money is spent properly? where do you want to see that money go specifically? >> i will take that one on. as i mentioned when i was here last week, proposition eight in and of itself -- proposition a is a very important measure. that was no small feat, a two thirds threshold was what it one by. along with proposition k and proposition j which is about protecting small businesses, this was a very prescriptive set of allocations for the money from homeownership programs to middle-income housing. i think the tracking of that money is very tight. that haven't been any problems with money being lost in the shuffle. i think we will see a lot of action over the next 3 to 5 years. >> san francisco is not a big city. where do we put all of this housing? >> you have to stretch it thin. a lot of it will be on the eastern side where we traditionally have taught -- built most of our affordable
4:36 pm
housing. southeast, the mission, will probably have most of the affordable housing production. we really want to see affordable housing around the city. maybe this will give us a chance to use the resources elsewhere. >> tim, what say you? >> i generally agree with my friend peter cohen. i think generally we need to keep in mind, $10 million sound like an awful lot of money but it's really a drop in the bucket relative to the challenges facing us, relative to the affordability needs that we are facing. it is incredibly expensive to build subsidized housing, bring down the cost of housing for people who aren't wealthy. while proposition eight was a -- proposition a was a step in the right direction, it's not the whole answer. other solutions we are working on, we are having trouble scaling them, the enormity of the challenge it we are facing
4:37 pm
what about --. >> what about proposition f? why did that fail?>> it was a point for me and dollars on the campaign. that was a 28 to one spending ratio. it's unfortunate that the distraction was around invasion and spying. the hard part was getting them to only list legally registered units. that would be a very big challenge. we will see a lot of pressure on the city to enforce and perhaps some legislative increase next year. i disagree with him, i don't think we should assume that the market will take the place of our housing. proposition a was huge. we need more of them. >> i appreciate you taking the time. for more election results. you will find really -- links
4:38 pm
for results for various counties that held elections today. me sadie's benz is rick -- recalling cars after discovering that some of the airbags will inflate even when the car is not in an action of. malfunction is causing a safety hazard pick in weather, still blustery conditions. be careful. we are tracking cold temperatures and possibly rain showers that could affect your weekend plans. the san mateo bridge, here's how it looks now, northbound 680 direction is a little sluggish on this wednesday.
4:39 pm
4:40 pm
4:41 pm
today there is word of a new airbag safety risk ago mercedes-benz is recalling 126,000 cars because the airbags can inflate even when the car hasn't been in an accident. the ntsb says the air bag control unit can come wrote -- corrode. this is just after a $70 million fine against takata boosted -- whose defective airbags caused seven deaths. we have clarence [ name indiscernible ] in washington dc joining us now by the phone. thank you for being with us clarence.
4:42 pm
>> thank you. >> this sounds like it was a manufacturing error. what more do we know about this and how dangerous is it? >> and airbag is your last line of protection in a crash. it should never fail. it shouldn't go off inadvertently as the mercedes airbags have. it should not fail to deploy in a crash as these mercedes airbags also have done. here's the problem with mercedes, the electronic control unit corrode and doesn't have the proper connection that it is supposed to have an so in some instances it goes off when there is no crash and when there is a crash , it may not go off. that is very serious. >> clarence, how do something like this happen? this is a luxury video -- vehicle. how do these errors happen and not get caught until the cars on the road?>> that is the problem.
4:43 pm
there is no guarantee that you are getting a safe vehicle. in the event of this mercedes, it's what i call a safety limit. safety -- safety lemons which are an equal opportunity event that can happen to luxury cars, inexpensive cars. the issue is the manufacturer should have caught this much earlier than what mercedes did. they should've done a recall. for the consumer, as soon as you get the recall notice, take it in and get it fixed because this airbag can save your life but only if it is working correctly. >> clarence, we are looking at video of the takata airbags. i haven't heard anything to suggest that these are the same airbags. these are two different types of airbags. do we know the difference between the takata airbags and the mercedes-benz ones? >> we do. the takata airbags are what we call a cut is traffic failure.
4:44 pm
-- catastrophic failure. the inflator is overpowered and shatters the housing and sends shrapnel into the occupant compartment. if you are in front of an airbag when it goes off you can be killed. in the instance of mercedes, it either deploys when you don't need it or it doesn't deploy in a crash. it is not going to kill you in an explosive event like the takata airbags. >> again, don't wait for the dealer to call you. just take a car in, >> absolutely, when it comes to an air back defect him a -- airbag defect, call the manufacturer and get it fixed as soon as you can. >> clarence ditlow out of washington dc, thank you for your time today. >> thank you. >> mark tamayo fresh off this weekend. i always wonder because it rained on your weekend.
