5:02 am

5:05 am
supporters plan to rally before tonight's union district school board meeting. this comes as teachers and the district have been locked in bitter negotiations for more than a year. teachers rejected a proposal last month and it's believed the next step may involve bringing in a state mediator. happening today, san francisco officials plan to increase the number of racks for bikes and e scooters and it's a concern for people around the city. we have a breakdown of the plan that's coming. >> reporter: this announcement later this morning comes as the city prepares for thousands or the potential for thousands of e scooters around the city in the coming months so it could continue to be a problem for folks in the city of san francisco. let's talk about how the city plans to deal with this issue. now, the plan is to increase the amount of secured e scooter bike racks around the city and they'll do this by adding 100 racks per month as well as having additional staff on hand to help out with any issues.
5:06 am
this comes as the city wrapped up a year long pilot program dealing with only two operators. even with those two operators, you had residents voicing concerns over all the scooters you're seeing around san francisco. at the conclusion of that program back in october, the city decided to permit four operators around the city. each of those operators can deploy up to 500 scooters each, but get this, by february that number is going to jump to 1,000 each per operator. they'll have the ability to add at least up to 1,000 bikes around the city. we'll get details during the morning news conference at 9:00 a.m. >> sounds good. we'll check back with you. 5:06. 9ers fans savoring a last-minute victory. they were down three points to arizona with 39 seconds left and that's when jimmy g spotted running back jeff wilson jr. fans were say who?

5:11 am
there's my career... my cause... and creating my dream home. i'm a work in progress. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. prescription dovato is for adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment and who aren't resistant to either of the medicines dolutegravir or lamivudine. dovato has 2 medicines in 1 pill to help you reach and then stay undetectable. so your hiv can be controlled with fewer medicines while taking dovato. you can take dovato anytime of day with food or without.
5:12 am
don't take dovato if you're allergic to any of its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. if you have hepatitis b, it can change during treatment with dovato and become harder to treat. your hepatitis b may get worse or become life-threatening if you stop taking dovato. so do not stop dovato without talking to your doctor. serious side effects can occur, including allergic reactions, liver problems, and liver failure. life-threatening side effects include lactic acid buildup and severe liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop taking dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis b or c. don't use dovato if you plan to become pregnant or during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy since one of its ingredients may harm your unborn baby. your doctor should do a pregnancy test before starting dovato. use effective birth control while taking dovato. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, nausea, trouble sleeping, and tiredness. so much goes into who i am and hope to be. ask your doctor if starting hiv treatment with dovato is right for you.
5:13 am
good monday morning. let's get out the door in dublin. we start out with cool temperatures and clear skies. we're down to 45 degrees at 8:00. the rest of the day is looking pretty nice, and this is the last day we'll enjoy temperatures in the upper 70s here before it cools off. we'll talk about that and our high fire danger for mid-week, that's coming up in about five minutes. we showed you the early back-up filling in the lanes of the bay bridge toll plaza and now we're looking at the bridge itself and i hear about a disabled vehicle around the treasure island tunnel, looking for signs of that. you do see that crowd. we'll talk about what else we found coming up.

"new york times" says we work could lay off as many as 4,000 nationwide. the problem with layoffs that big aside from the obvious human
5:15 am

5:19 am
into tomorrow. as it does so, our winds will start to pick up. tomorrow afternoon we're looking at wind speeds at about 15 to 25 miles per hour, maybe even higher for spots like half moon bay, over toward redwood city, parts of the south bay also getting gusty winds as that front passes. it will also be a westerly wind so it will bring more humidity. by wednesday our fire danger increases due to lower humidity, a shift in the wind direction and increasing winds in the north bay. we're looking at northerly winds on wednesday coming in at about 35 to 45 miles per hour, maybe even higher for those higher elevations. that's really going to be a concern and the reason why pg&e may issue those power outages. we're also looking ahead to some rain that may only happen for the north bay within the next couple of weeks while the rest of the bay area stays dry. this low pressure drops in and mostly brings some rain for southern california and parts of the sierra.
5:20 am
we're going to stay dry, especially in our seven-day forecast, but much cooler air is headed our way along with gusty winds and that high fire danger starts mostly early wednesday morning. we'll have more on that. mike, you have a couple of concerns for the bay bridge. >> i do. first of all, we had the bay bridge toll plaza with the back-up that formed five or ten minutes earlier than we typically see. we have this back-up at the toll plaza and we'll show you the approach coming up but once you leave the toll plaza, a disabled vehicle on the left side as you're approaching the tunnel exit. be careful as you travel through the area. they don't have a bridge crew yet. we don't see any real problems. the optical illusion is it looks like it comes to a stop at the curve. it doesn't. there was actually a hit-and-run
5:21 am
and no problems for contra costa county. south bay smooth across the bridges getting to the peninsula. back to you. >> thanks, mike. coming up, are you wearing your fitbit right now? >> no. what about you apple watch lovers? it turns out more and more fitbit users are ditching the fitness trackers and trying something different. the concerns some users have after google purchased the company. plus, you want to stick around for this. dramatic video, this is a drunk driver nearly hitting a police cruiser not once but twice. how it all ended coming up next. you're watching "today in the bay." ok, network inspection. -ok.
