and the next phase for what was once a bay area powerhouse. good morning, everyone. welcome back to mornings on 2. it's tuesday, august 27th. i'm mike mibach. >> bright sunshine behind us. along the oakland estuary. steve paulson, it was a little warm for some of us yesterday. >> very warm for me. mike, good morning. >> good morning. it has been a while. >> it has. gasia is right. temperatures are warm around the bay. but it does look slightly cooler today. yet most will still be well above average at least today. still upper 80s. mid-90s. they did drop the city a little bit. officially, i want that. the moisture off the coast. that's the remains of the tropical system. they are on the way for later this evening tonight into wednesday morning. we'll be getting dry lightning out of that. i would think early tomorrow morning would be the best. also solano county, contra
8:01 am
costa. not much of a breeze. it's just not there yet. probably tomorrow, though. 60s on the temps for most. temperatures are running a teeny bit cooler. and upper 50s, right over to some. fremont. union city, the same. pacifica, 53. 56 dealing with fog. a little cooler there. that fog will hang out by the coast. and those clouds will be on the move late tonight into tomorrow. still 90s in the interior. now, here's sal. >> all right. and we are looking at a commute that is still pretty busy out there. start with highway 24. because it has been slow. although it is getting a little better. and then 680, in case you're coming in from concord to walnut creek is slow. so is highway 4 because of earlier collisions. it was a stalled part. toll plaza sitting there. adding to what was already slow traffic there anyway. 880 northbound. slowing down right about here into downtown.
8:02 am
and there is downtown san jose. cal train, by the way. has no major difficulties reported. straight to the south bay. we're new this morning, as san jose police officers are recovering after a violent encounter during a traffic stop. it happened late last night, when the officer stopped a suspicious car near almaden boulevard. police say a person inside the car bit the officer's arm. a scuffle ensued and the driver drove away and dragged the officer some 30 feet. the officer was treated and released from the hospital. police have the car. they do not have the driver. there are not as many crossing bridges. as sara zendehnam reports, they are getting back millions of dollars in what would have been lost revenue. california registered 1.3 million temporary license plates for newly purchased cars from january to may. since then, there has been a 75% drop in toll evaders.
8:03 am
that is what makes it illegal for cars and plates. if you buy a car now, you get a temporary identifying license plate that is linked to your address so you can be track down. the way around the toll was driving through the toll plaza with a generic dealer plate. there was no way to track and find those drivers. ktvu first reported on that dealer plate loophole in 2013, and found the bay area was losing nearly 11 million a year in uncollected tolls. that's about $1 million a month. that number today is down to 250,000. this is encouraging news for the metropolitan commission. >> if we maintain the current pace, it will increase toll bridge revenue collection by approximately $8 million. >> new programs don't come without their fair share of issues, though. the dmv is working on improving the temporary license plates. by having a unifying font size. a clear sign to identify the
8:04 am
expiration date. and better adhesive, so plates don't flop up in the wind. but it's been good for ronel. >> hasn't been any hiccups. at first. obviously the new system. so still learning that. but other than that, it's been smooth. >> the dmv plan toss implement the new changes for the new license plates by november. sara zendehnam, ktvu fox 2 news. we have an update about a shooting in el cerrito. officials say the officer says he acted in self-defense. after shooting a homeless man outside the officer's home in el cerrito. police say the officer shot 44-year-old thomas wayland, after wayland attacked him with a rock. wayland survived and is now in the hospital. the officer has been identified as roderick subiton. he is on paid administrative leave. now to new surveillance

8:06 am
officers said over the radio, we are not going to initiate this. >> the woman who died has been identified as 28-year-old carol major. the other passenger, 26-year-old man from sunnyvale is listed in critical condition. the ride share driver is expected to be okay. perez now faces a number of criminal charges. happening today, a caravan of uber and lyft drivers will protest outside of san francisco. demanding to be classified as employees. ktvu cristina rendon. >> it is crossing the state and arriving here in san francisco at noon today. that's when the group is going to protest outside of uber's headquarters. this is an ongoing battle. they have had protests before. but this is the first time they will be using their cars for the protest. there are about 200 uber and lyft drivers that left los angeles yesterday. they're calling this a motor marsh going across the state.
8:07 am
coming here to san francisco to rally outside of uber's headquarters. they plan to shut down a portion of market street. and they say they're promoting ab5. they want that bill passed. that bill would essentially create that or classify them as employees. and would also create a pathway for drivers to unionize. give basic worker protections like minimum wage. health insurance. and paid sick days. >> i've been driving about three years. and the pay isn't enough. because when you take account for all the taxes that we have to pay. we're not just paying taxes on the money that we actually put in our bank account. we're paying taxes on the money that uber and lyft do. >> they have been fighting the passage of that bill, saying they will keep working with drivers to ensure quality of work. and critics say most drivers prefer the freedom and flexibility to create their own hours. many drivers have second jobs.
8:08 am
but this protest is still going to go strong from what we understand today. the motor march stopped in fresno. meeting to draw inspiration from that fight decades ago. and these protestors say that they hope to pay homage to that fight in sacramento in 1966. after today's noon protests, they are going to go across the bay, driving to oakland, where they will hold a 4:00 p.m. rally outside a church in oakland. then they will continue their way tomorrow. ending at the state capital in sacramento. pushing for ab-5 and of course pushing for a union. we're live in san francisco. cristina rendon, fox 2 news. across the bay. getting a new housing complex. in the form of a presettled apartment building. it's a five-story project called the union going up on fifth street. should be complete in about 10 days. typically, a building this size would take a year to complete. under regular construction methods. they are premade and assembled
