6:15 am
effectually and i'm concerned, worried, and it speak it is s t fact that it didn't happen overnight. >> and we talked to a front line worker who told us that many workers simply aren't following inspection procedures. does that surprise you? because their safety as well as the safety of passengers is at stake. >> well, i think everything you said so far is surprising. i think for the critics of metro especially those in congress and we have seen that over the last week, i think what it is doing, it is justifying their criticism. these reports. and this isn't the first report. you know, this is just one of many that have become -- >> this is the latest. >> the latest. and up in are sayinone are sayi moving in the right direction. for paul wiedefeld and those at
6:16 am
metro, i know they have to be saying when will this stop in terms of the bad news. we hear wiedefeld is the right guy, he now has a stafr iafety inspector in place. but if these reports continue to come out, he can talk about shutting the metro town for six mochts to do repair, he will have to do something more immediate to get folks on his side and i mean on capitol hill. >> he has quite a huge ship to turn around here. he came here with all these problems. >> he really does. this isn't surprising to me, but it's extremely depressing. and it goes to the fact that there is not a work ethic there. somebody has got on drum it into everybody from the top to the bottom this is serious. you have to do a better job. i have a mole, some we say, who phones me from time to time he works for metz the troh and tells me horror stories about people not working properly, people getting jobs based on their
6:17 am
and they're not paying attention. he isn't my only showeource, bu nevertheless, it doesn't paint a good picture. things don't look good and they have to change. >> the problem is that you need whistleblowers and they're very reluck taptd especially in government to come forward. and then the question is who can to you tell. because if you tell the people at the top and they're not going to do anything about it, then the chances are you lose your job or you get demoted or you're marked for a long time. but i think your mole is right on target. i do think the new manager, he must have known that these were issues before he took the job. i honestly think he knows and he has to crack the whip a lot harder. >> and he has the brought in a new safety chief. >> and congressman mika, remember he said i want heads to
6:18 am
and the new head of metro may have to start going down further to say we might have to take out some of these workers and replace them with people with a new mindset and we've talked about how metro need as new mindset and he may have to get in the weeds and get rid of some of the front line workers. >> you even have first responders who are worried. >> i saw the nbc 4 report. when you talk about fire extinguishers that don't work, this doesn't work, that doesn't work, you not only put the riders and employ years at work, but then the people who go into supposedly help and save you, they're at risk and they can't do their job. >> and for all of his impassed speech a guying last week, i'm going to come back here, i'll follow this through, you're not helping us, there isn't much sympathy on capitol hill and these reports make
6:19 am
get around. an there is a new transportation survey that shows most people in this area feel that is our biggest challenge. after jobs, after the economy, after crime, after terrorism. >> you've mentioned surprise. this one really surprised me because usually, you know, especially with politicians, you say we'll deal with crime, education, have better schools. but you look at this survey and to your point, it says traffic, by 33%. i think it's 10% when you get down to crime and education. so that it tells you specific to this area, a couple weeks ago we talked about a report that showed d.c. was two in terms of traffic. but i think the issue here, you're going to have all three jurisdictions or all three jurisdictions will have to get together to try to solve this. it's just not a problem in d.c., it's a problem with maryland, in virginia, obviously a lot of government work hes coming to d.c. but this is a regional i
6:20 am
jurisdictions coming together to come up with some kind of answer. i don't know how easy that will be. >> it's a quality of life issue. >> it is. it's a whole change of our society the reality is that you have to do more teleworking, working at home if you possibly can did that. and you have to look at staggered times off. this isn't the 21st century where everybody works 9:00 to 5:00. and it's not just elected officials. but they have to work with businesses who have to be part of the agreement, too. >> how do you get real estate people to stop building houses and apartments. i'm looking at raeks aalexandri now in the district they're not including parking in projects. they think that people will be near a metro station, they will walk and to other alternative things. they're counting on the millennials. i hope they're rig
6:21 am
>> isn't it ironic that another survey that looked at regional travel trends has found that telework has reduced traffic in our area by 10% that it could be so much worse. >> yeah. and we are talking about this, anytime you have a storm and folks get to stay at home and the government puts out the word that hey, you can telework, you don't have to come in, people take advantage of that. and so the answer may be that you may have to see more businesses maybe the government offering this outside of these sort of emergency situations in terms of where it may be difficult for people to get into work because of weather conditions. >> you guys live in d.c., so you don't have to worry about that. >> yes, to a degree because you guys that live outside of d.c. come into d.c. and mess up the traffic. >> you're welcome. >> we'll be right back.

6:24 am
it's a new day. so we all know that. and most of these young people have ways to communicate in a positive and a negative way. i think the question is if it's recognized that social media is a greater cause of this violence, then what do the schools do. what do parents do. how do you get control of it. we've talked about this before. yes, you need to know what your kids are doing, but if many of these schools allow these kids to bring these guys idevices in can schools do. >> and they don't have to use the devices in school. >> and it speaks to -- and i think i mentioned this last time. it speaks to what katcathy lani was attempting to do when she said the way we used to investigate gangs is physically infiltrate. and now you have to change to social media. you will have to now monitor the internet.
6:25 am
fighting gang activity now. and she was absolutely right even though some of her officers took exception with that. >> and what was interesting, you had one of the security coordinator, i think it might have been from montgomery county, teaching kids how to deal with thing, this person said maybe we need a seminar where we teach parents how to be parents. >> thanking about banning the cellphones in school, i think they should consider it. put it in your locker, and don't use it during the school day. >> but like having the gun, the guys that want do the killing and murdering and thuggery, i hate to use that term, but they will have with they will when they get out of school. this doesn't happen just in school. it happened late at night, this happenshe

so adding one word, you really have to wonder. people are either for this self-government or they're not. and certainly this keeps the issue out there, makes people think. but you got to do more than this about. >> and of course the mayor wants statehood on the ballot in november. >> but you have to education people about the issue. every time you see these stories and we saw it on nbc 4, you ask people on the street -- >> but it has to go beyond washington, d.c. >> that's the biggest thing. >> educating people on the lack of home rule in the city. people don't know about it. sxr thasgl sxr. >> thank you, gentlemen. stay with us for "news 4 today." it is 6:30. here are the top stories that we're following. several people were hospitalized after a three car crash in chevy chase last night near connecticut avenue and jones bridge road. three people were taken
