so you get a much softer image here because it's reflected instead of direct. by being soft and and not flashy and reflective, not direct light, it will be easier to live with, if you will, every day, whether you're looking at it or not. >> reporter: if all goes to plan, the public will get its first look at this new art installation in the fall. a mysterious giant aircraft at sfo caught a lot of people's attention this week. we made a few calls to find out what it is. turns out it's a private aircraft operated by a russian cargo company. the crew has been delivering machine parts to a manufacturing company here in the bay area. it's unique because it has the largest capacity for really odd shaped machine parts. another mystery tonight, what is killing so many sharks in the bay? leopard sharks are dying off in

and his team they've collected dozens of dead predators. there is a viral fungal infection that somehow makes its way into the shark's brain causing it to swim ashore. >> the healthy specimens are holded with toxins and we have -- loaded with toxins and then we have the infected animals dying along the way. >> reporter: researchers think the toxins are from the dirty runoff from this winter's significant rain. however, u.s. fish and wildlife is responsible for doing all of the testing and they have not confirmed it. the lafayette b.a.r.t. station about to get a major makeover, tonight we have a first look over the next eight months crews repaving the two western most parking lots and making improvements to the station entrance. the project includes more disabled and motorcycle parking, but about two dozen regular spaces will have to be squeezed out to make room. if you forget to feed that
parking meter in san francisco, you could get slapped with the most expensive parking ticket in history. would be it fair to charge some drivers more than others for the exact same violation? only on 5 tonight susie steimle explains why that could happen. >> reporter: if you park in the city, you know the feeling. >> lost your patience, you know. every two weeks you get one. >> don't tow my car. i'll take my ticket. that's why i was running. >> reporter: that anxious is my car going to be there when i get back to it feeling. >> my truck got towed this morning. >> reporter: or just knowing you owe $74 for annex piered meter. -- an expired meter. >> it's horrible. you're just like come on, man, another one. >> reporter: this couple knows it all too well. >> basically every time that we park we've been getting parking tickets because we can't pay the meters and then we can't pay the tickets because they're
even more than the meters. >> do you have keys? >> reporter: willow and bianca moved to san francisco in september with their 2-year-old daughter ezra. starting out this van was their home. >> from the minute the meters start until they quit working i am worried about parking tickets. >> in january we had about $1,300 in parking tickets. >> reporter: now willow has a job and they're in transitional housing, but they're still digging themselves out of the deep parking ticket hole. >> i get my $700 for the month and 500 of it goes to the mta. that's money from the government that i now have to give back to the city. >> for somebody making 1 or $2,000 a month, a$500 fine may not even be payable. >> reporter: the san francisco treasurer wants to change the fines and fees system. his suggestion? low income residents should be able to pay a percentage of a ticket, not the whole thing. >> some of the fines and fees
are so large, people can't pay any of it. so, in fact, the city gets less revenue than other cities where the fee is actually payable. >> reporter: to qualify individuals would have to be eligible for social services. ideally the city it would be able to look up someone's low income status. of course, it's hypothetical right now. >> at the end of the day it's really about fairness to everyone and insuring that people pay a flat fee. >> reporter: paul rhodes with sfmta says muni is not opposed to the idea. >> it's too early to say whether or not we would support any specific concepts coming out of the mta. >> reporter: there are payment plans and community service to pay off tickets. willow took part of that already. >> it has been in place a number of years to insure people who can't pay right away can pay a little at a time. >> reporter: san francisco has the most expensive parking
structure in the country. an expired meter here is $74, in oakland $54, in new york $65, d.c. $30 and in boston $35. >> at this time in san francisco for the rules we have to enforce it is appropriate. >> reporter: mta makes $200 million a year in traffic fees and fines. rhodes said if the city does change its current program, revenue loss from tickets would have to come from somebody else. this couple hopes lawnmakers realize this systemic change could be just the ticket they need for a shot at success. >> it's really hard trying to get ahead when you got to pay parking tickets. >> reporter: in san francisco susie steimle, kpix5. >> and the next challenge is actually finding a parking space. >> assuming that you can find somewhere to park. san francisco 52 degrees and cloudy now in the city. it got foggy in short order and the cloud cover has pushed all the way inland, san jose 58,

seven assists. utah scored 35 in the 3rd thanks mostly to that man, gordon hayward, the former butler cutting the warrior lead to single digits. there was a nervous moment later. draymond tweaked his knee, left, went to the locker room, returned later. under four minute warriors up 11, steph curry puts the game away with a kiss off the glass. he had 23 points. warriors win game two 115-104. >> reporter: what are your thoughts on he doing the team motivated -- thoughts on keeping the team motivated and focused having not been to the playoffs yet? >> i'm going to switch seats with you next game and then you let me know if you thought that was easy. i knew my knee was just locking up a little bit. i had it before. one time it happened when i was in college and i rebounded in michigan two days later their whole team. so that was pretty good. >> he's moving to utah now.
