"Plan to do that so all in Katy getting disagree third it's her day to have you tell her she's wrong she wants to ban all the frats and sororities gets it done with it that's come in a few minutes are you get up to her cantus rationale and then you get the hell she's wrong and ninety nine seven three all this morning during the tunnel are during the commute to rather in the ninety nine total eighty eight and also one out took over people's radios in said all right turning your car's get outs of act with the total roughly it said that it was apparently mistake partridge joins us Washington state department transportation bart will come the came I could talk show thank heaven appreciate you coming on good question bart what system was this that then took over the radios when people were in the tunnel this morning was this the I pod system or was this something else it's called a about them over right and can you explain how that works to people sure so we have a lot of safety systems inside the tunnel it typically it it's yeah most of the things that people are familiar with yeah the ventilation system verifiers press suppression system but there's also notification sign though is you're approaching a tunnel if they're like a special events so knowing you're heading heading south bound that's good information now or if there's a stalled vehicle or collision ahead you're going to want to know that before you get too much farther in the tunnel you start seems brake light so it prepares you for what to expect in so depending on the severity of it and for that we we use these these tools to notify folks of what to expect meeting with the right lane to slow down those types of things when we have we have sold vehicle this morning just before seven o'clock right before the mercy street exit Mercer Harrison exit and so we yes part of that we we work really closely with the law enforcement for instant response team that's out there on the panel so that they went out there took a look at the vehicle so you can move it but the meantime our operations team looks at what it does what it does best is that we need to display or what we need to advise folks as are heading into the tunnel and so we have a suite of options of things that we can pick from it's kind of the right tool for the right job it might be an overhead message sign this is Hey the old vehicle for traffic ahead that type of thing well one of them as one of the options is the name after all right for folks to exit the vehicle and annexed the tunnel and that wasn't the right tool for this job but it's something that we can you say if there is an incident that would in their safety we need folks to yeah get out of the vehicle start exiting the tunnel so it's kind of like one was worse case scenario type options that we have available for for for driver and passenger safety okay so I understand that it is there is there anything notifying the drivers that at any time watch dot can take over the system in their vehicle to then warn them like is there a sign on either end of the tunnel that a driver might see no right bart's trees trances Welsh me back up well I can contact is important to point out here also so if you if you see brake lights you see emergency lights up ahead if there's a sign that says they have collision had moved to the right move to last or if you're in a tunnel and you see brake lights an emergency lights and then you hear that the message you need to exit the vehicle that that that that message that folks who you would need to Q. them to take the next step and then we even have a PA system the tunnel that would advise them to exit the tunnel or use the you would call the egress areas to it to exit safely so they would hear further instructions if that was something that we need to we need to advise folks off but she says with his washes it department transportation cell bart I was missing this morning sells more news Dave Roscommon a bright we're talking about this and I got to deal with Chris sold under this traffic force in the morning and you know Traci tele courses traffic right now during the show and here's here's my question for you how concerned are you guys in it it doesn't appear that people follow directions that the announcement one out and we were running an interview with a lady who said yeah I I heard of five or six times on loop but I drove through the tunnel are you guys concern with it it seems like people to sit out whatever so from where you spoke with yeah if you drive into the tunnel you have free flowing traffic in here messes like that it doesn't make sense does if yours free flowing traffic no but I if there's if it announcement comes out and it's an emergency variety and it says evacuate are you guys concerned that people did not follow directions so part of it the context right so if you if you if if the message match of the context that's what we're people we need to take action and so if you see free for trafficking here message like that it's not gonna really add up and so what most folks really start peace new things together and and so if you do see slow traffic you see life in you hear sirens in here a message like that okay I need to I need to take take the step but if there's nothing else beside that message to get you to to to pop the some other action it's just not going to add up all right so your advice then is if the announcement from wash dot on your radio is stop in the back of your car to then check around and see if other people doing the same thing if their sirens are lights set to have a secondary judgment not just rely on what washed out tells them we have to stay engaged when you're when you're behind the wheel and driving a vehicle that's the most important job that you have and is this the box safe operation of that vehicle and so part of that is take into account what else is going on here am I going to it if their their vehicle stop the head I probably need to stop and if their scientists they need to exit here I should probably follow that side but if you're not seeing those other clues in here something that doesn't it just doesn't add up so part of it's just just being aware of of your surroundings being aware of what's going on and then as you hear that that the messages and you see the advice that that's coming in to to do something else all the advice but it's gonna make sense so we've had a couple of new stories over the past year or so regarding false alarms like this the big one in Hawaii obviously this was on that caliber but this was another one where people received a warning when there was actually a warning for them to be receiving it was a mistake on the procedural and did you folks need to make any changes on the way you issue these warnings or who's involved in issuing these warnings or is it just one of those things that you consider kind of a one off it's totally one off when we have an instant there's a there's a list of options that are are we have to choose from and part of its you know eliminating a sign that says you know something the head it could be additional lighting in the tunnel so people can see what's going on better have a better yeah the user had to match the tunnel leading with the outside conditions maybe a better venue no increase the ventilation fans yeah there's a lot of things that need that that we can choose from but it's got to be appropriate for the situation so it you know our our operators are trained the they know what they're doing this is an advert you know clearly it's something we can follow up on it and make sure folks are aware of of you know the steps needed and and the choices and to make sure the sources of the most appropriate for the situation our trees from Marcia joins us now he's a northwest communications manager talk about the ninety nine total this morning and how an alert came off the people evacuate and then that caused a little bit of confusion so bart moving forward we know that there was a bunch of confusion this morning do we need a sign telling people that yes your radio may be taken over by washed out to give you further important instructions in the event of an emergency maybe on both ends of the tunnel or or what the thing with signing if you want to give the right amount of information so if you have too many signs and and people get used to them they may not they may not keep an eye out for and so we want to be very strategic about where to put science with you have a radio message like that your vehicle and if traffic is stopped and you hear the message from over aim FM radio say listen Kenny Mike and Todd in your your vehicle stock in the tunnel and all the sudden watched I get sciences Hey detects the vehicle and an ex the tile lets you match the message in the tunnel that says he move it move to the exits to in the title so there's there's it all has to fit together yeah we it it's a it's a new tunnel of sophisticated there's a lot of our systems in there that that make it function really well so this is one of those items that we have that can help it you know people in the event of an incident and its for safety all right but she's been with this wash dot north was communications manager appreciate you coming on bart thanks very much thanks said name the show you said experiments and again I'm sorry because the confusion that's not our intent we appreciate people being aware and hopefully they contain the same dates I appreciate very much six Martin coming up on the Katy my can talk show came the steps up for tell me I'm wrong and the rules pretty clear you you get to respond to her this is kind of a senior thesis.

"You have police story. I have a police storing ship police be stationed at baseball games to keep an eye on parents. We're terrible. Now that is the new plan in one city takes candy to nine eight nine seven three to find out. Why baseball parental violence is on the Bri. Are you making fun of that like I was kind of making fun of the fourth of July thing. No, it is a serious thing. All these parents think their scouts in the Sanders. Funny because that makes it really even worse because baseball participation is on the decline. Let's not do that. Choose your news vote now by texting candy, Mike or tied to nine eight nine seven three Graham Johnson's with this. Our news partners at car seven TV a story about people in the work. Washington State Department of transportation employees finding themselves at risk and threaten his address stand it because they've got to go into some areas where this homeless camp. So thanks for coming of the Katie Mike and Todd show Graham what's going on. You know, it's a tough situation because he's people just trying to do their job sense of what their job is. So these are the folks who maintain our highways they replaced guard rails. They inspect bridges they do preventative maintenance on traffic signals, basically, so things don't break down all of a sudden, and we all get into cham-. So they go out and their work takes, of course, alongside highways and also adhere changes and things like that. And they are increasingly having trouble with encountering hazardous materials. Possibly volatile people. Needle. That kind of thing or just a bunch of garbage that is sort of blocking their way to getting to where they need to go. For example, we went out with a guy who basically checks out traffic signal. He needs to get to these metal cabinet you probably pass by hundred times a day. Never really notice. Well, he goes out every so often to make sure that they're doing just fine. And he tells us that sometimes if there's some kind of a problem there he has to turn back and come back another time. So it affects the way our highways are maintained so Graham are these transportation workers Washington state transportation department, those workers are they being additionally compensated for these new hazards that they're encountering no, we don't know of any additional compensation. They certainly are basically realizing though that this is taking a lot of their time. And so one of the things that they are frustrated with these are people who signed on to maintain the highways, and so they are out there doing this. But sometimes they just can't get the job done because they realize what we're in. We're they encounter something. Dangerous and were someone dangerous, and they are trained to not engage with folks or to step back if there's a hazard, and so that air can be cleaned up. So they then leave, but these are folks who want to do the highway work and realize they're not cops, and they're not social workers. And so they know their limitations, and so they basically want to focus on her job. But it's it's increasingly challenging too. So so grim Johnson's with us our news partner car seven TV report tonight at five thirty get more details on this of Washington State Department transportation workers going outside of their duty Graham, I've talked to first responders who don't want to go to these camps. They don't want to go under the freeway. I've talked to people who are ambulance drivers or EMT's. They went to the police get there. I know cops. You don't want to go down there. So have they have these folks faced threats they faced they feel they're in physical danger in these in these areas, it really depends on the situation. I mean, some days they're doing just fine. They're able to get their work done and get in and get out. And and it's fine. Right. But there are times increasingly where they're not so considered where they definitely things are not going to simply in fact, a lot of times one of their concerns just as biohazard. So I talk with the guy who's worked for the state's transportation for a long time. He says, you know years ago, he would walk down the I five corridor and street shoes. But now it's just routine tells me to come in contact with human waste. So he says I would never walk down there, you know, without any big boots now. And so these are the kinds of things particularly a concern of folks who inspect bridges, so they need to sometimes get into tight spaces. Right. You go under a bridge small area. Not not not a nice place. And so did more to your question. There is that needs to be cleaned out first. But even the the assistant regional ministry for meetings tells me, okay, maybe cleaned out. But if it's you you're still going to hesitate getting down on your hands and knees and do this work. So yeah, they are. They're not thrilled about it grin is this. The new normal for Washington State Department of transportation workers. I mean, I don't think that's going to go over. Well, if you put it in the brochure. In terms of recruiting workers. Yeah. This is this is a challenge. I mean, the people I spoke with have been added for you know, a number of years. So it's even some decades. And this is not what they signed up to do. Right. And so that is there increasing concern with this is that they have these extra challenges. It's at the moment is sort of become the new normal, and we're talking up and down the I five corridor. Really all statewide though. They tell me do we found a lot of you know, reports from Seattle areas, you can imagine also Tacoma, there's Pearson thirsty counties as well. All right. So this is going to be a five thirty tonight seven TV, you get a lot more detail from that Graham Johnson. Appreciate you coming on the caney Mike in touch. Thanks very much for your time. My pleasure. Thank you so much..

"Don. Appreciate it. Real pleasure to have you back. Amy. I remember this story. I remember it was awful. It was a torchlight parade in two thousand six I'll start it there. And have you finish off with what we know? Now. Well, a twelve year old runaway was in Seattle. Mother and she was downtown on. What are the business nights in downtown Seattle looking for her mother asking people to help her locate her mother when and I'm quoting from court documents that have just been filed now when she asked an unknown man, if she could use his phone, well, the unknown man allegedly pulled her into an alley where he raped the twelve year old girl and DNA was collected that very day in two thousand six, but because of Washington state rape kit backlog, it wasn't tested until late last year more than twelve years later, and it was just matched to a registered sex offender named Robert Joe child junior and Amy do we know at this point how many other people this guy's raped wall? Olympia, just simply. Couldn't find six million dollars to process rape kits. Well, he's been living in Florida. And we do know that he has prior convictions for station and other things I don't know what if any criminal history, he has a Florida, but he's certainly had a criminal history before this two thousand six alleged rape. So you know, that's a that's a very good question. Taught enough one of the things that when I posted the story on my Facebook page and Twitter earlier today, the first thing that people start asking about so how many other victims could be out there. And you don't know because here's the thing about rape victims are very reluctant to report report those crimes because the process to have a rape kit. Taken is intrusive. It's it's embarrassing. Although there should be no shamed. Involved. The victims didn't do too cautious. But it's not an easy process and a lot of victims choose not to even do it. And then to have it sits in a in a sample for twelve years, not being tested. It's just really frustrating. I've spoken with a lot of victims. And a lot of people who are sexual assault advocates who are very frustrated that this is not something that the state of Washington apparently wants to prioritize in order to get the rape kit backlog address, this is kind of a left field question. But I'm curious when this guy the suspect Robert Joe child junior went his DNA identified as his would have been in the system, if it's only been in the systems for six years, and they had tested this rape kit twelve years ago, would they have missed it is your provision for re-testing rape kits occasionally if they don't come up with someone on the first time, they're they're tested that makes sense. I don't I don't really know what you're at. I think I think the system until the end of two thousand eighteen. Okay. When when the suspect in Florida when his DNA was tested somewhere identified as his and allowed for it to be matched to the this the sample click, so how did they seems like the timing? Yeah. Okay. Well, yeah. I mean, if this two thousand six case had been tested right away and entered into coda. A match could have been made instantaneously because prior convictions to this two thousand six. Yeah. Okay. The whole point of getting the backlog addressed is that then it can be instantaneous rather than wait around for twelve years. Some other states Felix when a child is raped. They test the DNA of the assailant and put it in a database. Okay. And and they make that a priority. Got it. Right. Amy. I assume that we might look forward to some details of this on a seven TV. Yeah. It's going to be on tonight at six o'clock. But here's something else that viewers and listeners. Okay, right now, there is a house Bill that's on its way through the state legislature to address the issue of the backlog to fund the testing the testing but to fund six million dollars. So that the crime lab in Vancouver can be re can be basically beefed up. These tests can be tested more quickly. I wanted to spare you hearing my rant on this. But I'm gonna I gotta tell you something. It is. It is garbage. That they couldn't find this money. I'll find it right now. Ready? You don't run four million stinking dollars on tunnel ads because I will guarantee you the tunnel. Got a billion dollars in free PR based earned media. I guarantee there's four million sound transit. You know, what I don't think that's a rant. I think that your daughter. I'm not done. Jay Inslee controls, the Washington State Department transportation reports exactly to him. He could say now guys more than four million dollars in ads. I need that four million for the rape kit. Backlog sound transit celebrated a late tenure late billion dollars over not yet finished project for a million dollar party. Now, I'm up to five million. We funded a one million dollar fund for illegal immigrants in our state. And I know that's controversial issue. Some people disagree with me on. I just got to six million. That was easy. I could go some other directions. I could go to travel. I could go to the fact that in our school districts, there are actual positions that are paid to take meetings. They're meeting intermediaries what they do is they go to Olympia. So the principals don't have to get on Skype in attend meetings. With folks in Olympia, they're paid to go to Olympia attend meetings, and then fly back to the district and go brief principles on what they did in the meeting. I've got another one for Utah to add to your rent. I am not saying it shouldn't be done because I do believe it should be done that is efforts to save orcas. But the the price tag is over one billion dollars with a B but rape kit testing I spoke with somebody today down in Olympia. It is that the state would need thirteen million to clear the backlog in the next two years thirteen million compared to one billion. There's got to be money somewhere to get this done. So that we can start reporting on the people pretension serial, rapists, what about potential murderers, we know that DNA connects people to heinous crimes every day as long as it's tested. But not if it's not any listen and Felix I mean, I- monopolized where did it fall down in terms of the Gregoire administration? Oh. Care start in kissed. How they how they let the back. It's hard to explain they can't make an issue of this. There's no lobbyists for rapists are from rape victims. So they don't have lobbyists. There's there's also an issue of there aren't enough technicians in the Washington state patrol crime labs in order to process it as quickly as it comes in. And so the rape the backlog builds and then in two thousand fourteen the state legislature said got this back lot backlogged. It needs to be addressed in a law was passed that it needed to be tested. But that doesn't necessarily mean that the technicians are available. That that there's enough of them to do it. And so there are a number of issues that need to be addressed in order for this to happen. But it can't be done because Ohio.

Let's just make the commute worse selling. It's been dictate when you're talking about the fall. Oh, it is because they're so mad about the four or five tolls. So the four or five tolls. The story is this that they were given an opportunity to quote test. Whether tolls would work, you're going to charge rich people for a faster drive in shove, poor people into the nonpaying lanes is that can work. Yep. It's gonna work. Everybody knew it was gonna work. We know the intended or at least I do toll every road in the United States are in Washington. So there's a Bill now to change the parameters of the toll lanes why? Because there were two things they had to meet speed, right and price. Right. So our attorney general Bob, Ferguson said and means or. In that case and means or same guy who says sheriffs are putting into this risk. Putting us at risk by the way. It's okay to have heroin saying, it's not speed or price. It was both exactly and Bob Ferguson said in this case and means or. Yeah. Bob, Ferguson said this the statute can be read to mean, the only have to. Yeah. No. It could also be read to me. It's a recipe for tomato soup. If you choose to read it that way, correct? That's not a benefit to the driver on the east side. Right. It's one or the other. No you had to reach both. They never did. And hence the soldier driving that you can do right now. So there's a Bill to change the parameters they say the Bill would create an alternate metric, this is my bureaucrat voice, an alternate. Metric determined by the department in conjunction with the federal highway administration. What would that metric be if it is not price and it is not an alternate metric? It. It is not an alternate universe. You need an actual metric that you can tell me. Time and it's not speed. But if you're washed up, it could be internal pain or price could be internal frustration blood pressure. It'd be measuring people's eyeballs that popping out Senator Curtis. King says he's not getting it. He's a ranking member of the transportation committee. He isn't buying it. You know, it's a way to get the pressure off of them. But I think there needs to be pressure. We're we're collecting millions of dollars from the people that are in these toll lanes, and they need to be assured that it it's gonna be worth their while. So for the first three years of four or five express toll lanes generated nearly seventy five million dollars that doesn't million more than what they thought. Yeah. At forty what happens when you steal someone's property.

Check traffic brought to you by Michael's Subaru of Bellevue. Okay. So drivers that are going southbound I five Albro. Here's the deal. This is an investigation. That's happening right now. Three lanes are blocked HOV lane two left lanes. And no estimated time. When those those lanes will be reopened. However, it is causing a little bit of a lineup after the west Seattle bridge towards that scene. If you want to jump off of that lineup. You might want to consider using airport way south. That's just a quicker and faster route getting out of the city. Also watching this stall out. No, it's a wreck. Southbound I five just north of seventy that's taking up the right lane. Also, just a reminder if you are going to be traveling over I ninety you're not going to be able to do that because it shutdown between north bend and Ellensburg, both directions. And that has a lot to do with the adverse weather conditions that we've had over the last twenty four hours drivers that normally us highway eighteen out near is Oklahoma road. Both directions are shut down there. You are going to find no make that westbound eighteen from Issaquah Hobart road. Those lanes are shut down because of the earlier jackknifed semi those those twenty four hours ago. So it's going to take them still a little while to get things kind of recovered through that area.

What about my screen time depends on if you're being a producer or consumer oftentimes your screen time. Producers very hurtful very hurtful to the world harmful. No, I'm taking that back. No, no way is very very. Very very much the way Arps, you're all good. Everything's fine. So we're going to dig into that. But before we do that coming up that'd be three fifteen before we do that we talked with Tracy Taylor last week about a certain stretch of road. I five in Tacoma gone through Tacoma. And she mentioned something my wrecks in five months all of which had to do with tractor trailers them every single one of them. Yeah. And so now we're up to six wreck site. So I went back, and I did the research this morning. So we had a to Rex starting on October of two thousand eighteen one on the first one on the eleventh. Then we had a wreck in December December eleventh as well. Also same area semi-truck we had one we had to this month. So again, I mean, we're we're just stacking things up when it comes to truck drivers driving through southbound I five at highway sixteen and this is a construction zone currently active, right? Yes. And this is the pro can you explain the problems? Might not have heard you last week. So when you're coming through that area. It's a very very narrow margin of error. I mean, the barriers are there. You've got a one inch and DOT says it's up to it's up to par. It's up to scare the driving over the Aurora bread. Yeah. Yeah. We got a text from a truck driver. Who said, yeah. I I'm driving a twenty five Trump ton truck or something and I have one inch of clearance and the Washington State Department of non transportation as I see it has said, yeah, it's all good. We're not changing anything and it just reminded everybody. This is the same Washington State Department transportation his own documents said don't build a high speed rail. There don't do it. It was her own documents. Don't do it. The train tracks aren't ready, but oh that delicious federal money than they did it in three people died. I'm just praying that none of our neighbors are hurt or killed or hurt. It's just stunning to hear wash dot se. We have no plan to address this. So this morning we heard from state patrol. State patrol did say that the driver was driving one too fast for the conditions. So he was cited for that. At three thirty in the morning. I got to work at two-thirty any it was driving rain coming into work now at three thirty. It was still very heavy rain and through that area. There is a lot of standing water. Now, I'm not gonna make any excuses. I'm not gonna say anything. I'm just saying it's become a concern. And a concern not only for drivers in that area. But for for everyone involved, I would only suggest this if this is a private company either adding results like this. I think the state would jump in speaking of private companies rake, Tracy, speaking of private companies, Boeing consult all of this for us, and they're up microcosmic tech guy. Gadget guy. Boeing is gonna come to the rescue of transportation all around the district because we're getting our Jetsons on this has been Ogle. There's so much please do not put ceilings upon me. Hey, todd. Do you wanna go into Thomas vehicle with me? Well, no, would you like to go in a new autonomous helicopter? You what not going to do the autonomous thing? Eric's sabia Thomas cruise. That would be. Yes, that's exactly what I want. Thomas Lee floating in a floating prison. So if the Thomas vehicles are actually going to be Thomas and not controlled by, you know, our betters in corporate America in governance, and you crony capitalism and all that I'd be in talk to us about the floating cars have these are actually going to be controlled by the trilateral commission. So with that. A member. Are they shaped like a rug? They are shaped like a rug. They will track all of your heartbeat even Todd good. It's Boeing is is bought a company specifically to advance this this is Boeing working with and maybe researching with Uber defined self rather a Thomas flying taxis. There's a variety of designs out there. But Boeing just did in Virginia its first test flight of its economist vehicle Thomas flying taxi, it turned out pretty good according to Boeing, and so there, you know, but they have obviously not this is not ready for market yet. But it's probably going to be ready for market. They're thinking within five years. They can really move this technology ahead, and it's going to allow people to bypass this horrible traffic in places like Seattle. You don't we should do is before the floating cars come from Boeing Newburgh. We should take like forty thousand dollars from the average taxpayer and have pay for you train where it's locked to the is locked to the ground. That's. Eighteen fifties technology. Let's double down. Let's make it ninety million on that since the foreign cars are on the way there's going to be people just like you that will not get into an autonomous vehicle. Lumpy? Misunderstood will not get into Uber air when it then they'll they'll let me just clarify. This is clarify this all it's not the vehicle have a problem with right? It's not the autonomy. Now on the roads. I will always choose to drive myself because I like to drive Mike, you're motorcyclists. You know, the thrill of the chase. I don't think you're gonna give that up. That's a heartbeat thing for you this part. Thrill of the chase. But I don't know. Driving your bike. So I do it entirely because I enjoy it. Of course, I car together. You would choose to drive. You would offer to drive you like the dry do. And I think you're I'm sure you're fine driver. I my concern is not the autonomous vehicles. It's the fact that they're not going to be autonomous that we're going to be put on a grid and shipped. And that's all I'm just you know, what I'm really a guy who just doesn't.

"I'm happy about that. I'm super super happy. Work as efficiently as a kid. And I I like the the so I like the autonomous. I mean, you're talking about stages of development, right right now, we're at the stage where you're almost at five years away from really reliable self driving cars, but what I like about self driving cars is. Is the is just as guarantee that at least something inside the car is paying a little bit of attention. And this is my problem with I don't know again, I will stay till you know, till till my grave. I do not know how this in any way is backsliding from the quality of driving that exists right now on the roads around here where I'm from it doesn't matter every single day. I'm on my motorcycle. I see someone who I do not take evasive action, or I'm not just at least very aware of the fact that they're texting or they're talking to somebody in the car or their disciplining their kid. These are the type of things that I'm hoping unless we want the AFC so sophisticated that texting to another car o looking at it's going to be doing all that you're going to be sitting inside this box being shipped around like an inanimate objects on the way to the place. Exact being on a flight. Well again. The flight is something I do because I can't find any other way to get across the country in that period of time. It's not like a flight because it's prohibitive now, it's going to be you can't they want to take five over Mike. The there is an effort that there's an effort from people Madryn adventures they want to shut down for anything. But computer driven cars, that's an effort. They're making. They don't want the government. I didn't say they were Madryn adventures is working with the government, not Madonna specifically. But one of their investors is making a play. And by the way source of my people like the Washington policy center who fancies themselves, very free market. And usually are they foresee this old this panacea of let's not let you actually have this physical mobility. I've just learning that there's a group of people here that I just I can't relate to and that's urbanism. I can't relate to I want to force you to come downtown the way, I want you to don't want cars we want gardens at cetera. And it's it's it's the good news is I got my place to retire to. Here's better news. It's not going to be just a self driving cars harps. You seem really into this. Every time every time we talk scooters or scooters from Amazon that are going to have an I'm not supposed to say that name of the device because it a all right? So if the bike's not the scooter, so it has a embedded in it apparently self driving cars are out now, micro mobility is in this is more urbanism. Okay. But why are we wire cities involved in figuring out if you can have electric scooters because the geography of cities and the weather patterns of cities make it not as scooter friendly. So I mean, east scooters are kind of like gremlins, you don't get wet. You can't go downhill you don't feed them after midnight. Like all that. It's kind of the same thing. You can't carry anything on them. You can't go shopping furniture one person. Not to San Francisco. I'm looking at you. That was a big problem for a while. But Portland might have figured this out on east scooters for our region. Kind of like our weather patterns and geography, maybe it's a seasonal thing. So they just release all the data from the east scooter companies that they have been collecting over the last year. And this is why Todd will. I'll never ride one one of the main things they tracked where's the highest usage? Assumed it was going to be like the Pearl district where a lot of these restaurants are in bars. Are it's not it's northeast Portland where it was kind of once removed over a river where people were trying to get around. And it just wasn't easy. Sure. At restaurants and bars, they were just further apart. So think like Greenwood Ballard, maybe you district. That's where you would have a lot of like the high point to point a waiver neighborhood not into a neighborhood or Jackley its point to point for the neighborhood. And so what they had found over the last year is that thirty five it from portlanders under thirty five seventy one percent of people that said that they Mark their age when they use the scooter because you put your credit card in already out, and they Mark you say so people under thirty five who is the biggest group that use them. Seventy four percent of those people where people of color and those incomes. They really found that people made about thirty thousand dollars a year sixty. Six percent are users of these east gooders. Those are the people that were the most attracted to them. A lot of them were also students, and it was kind of interesting. They said thirty four percent of the Portland writers and forty eight percent of visitors took the east scooter instead of driving a personal car or using Uber lift or a taxi motorists for happy. I have no problem with it. If people are doing this voluntarily have no problem with it. If people are choosing this. I have no problem with it. You might choose them at Thomas car. You have no problem with right? Exactly. But whatever problem with is people saying you need to get out of your car, you need to stop driving your single occupancy vehicle. You know, he's told you that and no one's may do that. But that's the whole design, Mike. That's the Washington State Department transportation is admitted that at least you do something healthy. According to a report riding, a motorcycle is good for you. According to it's to report from UCLA. And and and if you look a little more closely at this report, as I have there might be sort of a chance that it was actually funded by a motorcycle cop turns out, it was actually funded by Harley Davidson got a funny. Funny. But that doesn't mean the sciences inaccurate. It just means that the findings maybe our flattering. Dan. What do they found what they found was researchers observed that that the level of stress, and when they would survey people level stress in people who ride motorcycles regularly Twenty-eight percent, decrease in stress and stress biomarkers. They would actually tag them with with sensors while they were riding around. Although I gotta say sometimes it's Seattle. I would imagine mind with double increased heart rate, but not in a bad way. And that adrenaline levels is worse, focusing alertness. They would test them before. And after about their level of concentration. I would say for me that when I write when I'm on a motorcycle, the nicest thing about it the thing that I think I'm mildly. I write an all weather mildly addicted to is.

"Are one foot narrower, and there's there's a little bit of a shoulder, but now full shoulder. So that is what they're attributing jump in on this one, please. Because this is just this is so bad. Gentleman, Tracy Taylor. So I covered a semi crash that hit the barrier. The driver was what driving way too fast for the conditions in that area. And that's what happened, and that's why all lanes on both directions of I five shutdown. Yes. Absolutely. Right. Five wrecks in five months, all of which had to do with tractor trailers all of them in that same area. So again, the rats are pretty deep when we have water it standing water as for being construction zone. Yeah. It is construction zone. I drive through there every single day. But there's something to be said when we have five racks all of which were semi trucks in a. Yeah. Tracy. Thanks for that, the Washington state trooper Jonah, Johnny beliefs all Batiste Jonah. I knew Jonah ones. I can't be Jonah. It's frustrating. It's frustrating. Not only is emergency responders. But also to a citizens to live in the area enough the commute through it. I just I toss this out to the room to everyone to discuss if a private business had five instances like this in five months and set. Yeah. It's not our fault. We're good. We're not changing dang thing. The state of Washington would say cool. Thoughts responses will you're talking about it's not all tractor trailers. So it's not also my truck drivers. But that the major accidents that we've seen recently have been them. And what they're pointing to is the truck drivers are not paying attention to this more narrow road. But I don't necessarily know if this more narrowed can accommodate the truck driver, we almost got killed in this area as German with a friend of mine is not a truck driver. We happen to have been driving in a truck. But it wasn't a big truck. It was a it was a work truck. And if you've driven to that area. It's it's scary because it's not just the semi trucks. You're having problems with this Mike you've done a lot of work in and around the what what in, but you've you've do studied the Washington State Department transportation, I contend it's uniquely unaccountable agency that doesn't care about us. All right. So let's get back to the traffic. Just a moment. The my understanding is this is a construction zone. Yes. So what is the construction zone? I mean, the last time I checked your required a slow way down and sort of pick your way through it. And hopefully when it's no longer construction zone and all of that is fixed. It's okay. So I don't know that this is a great example of of wash dot not caring. I mean, you're there are examples. I think absolutely wash dot maybe not engaging enough in the public. I mean, remember the thing with transit agencies. His that Jesus look at their their their attorneys, you know, eat their young. I mean, these are these are not agencies that are really prone to listening to a lot. They do a lot because they're always in when you're doing a transit project everyone's unhappy, and when you're putting transit through somewhere everyone's unhappy. And so they get a little resistant. I think sometimes they don't listen to the actual decent complaints within the cacophony of noise in this particular case, it's a construction zone. Five accidents in any. Stretch of road over five months in this area. Does it to me sound like a crisis crisis? It seems dangerous, and I hope that someone doesn't get hurt. I'd love to hear thoughts. Nine eight nine seven three. Can't get the thought of people eating their young out of my head. But I'm going to try very very hard. There is a woman she she died in that sad. And then she left behind the no-bid jewelry, and then the newspaper printed it. But then they said, maybe we shouldn't have printed this harps enlighten us. Well, they did not print it then associates are answers Irene Finley Williams, and it November twenty first is when she passed the family went to the paper and said, hey, here's herb itchy. And at the very end of it. It said if I die soon all this Trump stuff has had an effect. And it was kind of like a jab in the obits. Was it a ha yes, she would have liked. I guess is what her family was saying. And then when they had sent that to the paper, the paper does prescreen these and they said. Yeah. I think we're gonna do that. And so after that point though, when the family members got a hold of this and put it up on their social media Facebook page and said, hey, you know, what that's not right? Like you as the newspaper should have printed the obituary that would be honor our family member and how we see fit. We're paying for it. Here you go over choice have changed a lot over the cats. I've had Reverend dozens and dozens of obituaries it went from a job that the newspaper decided to do to a paid service. And so if they're paying for it, they get their language if you're doing it, you could make the decisions on it in this particular case, they sit around with what they with what actually they paid for. And the courier journal did come back today and say we should not have told you that we were not going to run it with that line. And we have done it, and they have now not offered to rerun her obituary, but instead refund that sixteen hundred dollars hundred dollars. It's a lot that is take away when we come back after we check this traffic, a state agency says poor kids, this should get an advantage in sports or they're thinking of that. So we'll dig into it Tracy.

With actually teach airline pilots now to Mike Lewis's point wash dot said, they didn't expect today would be the worst. We do expect Monday traffic to be a little bit lighter than normal because it's it's a Monday. But as the traffic volumes build over the week, it's important that we'd be diligent and stick with our new travel plan. Now, I'm rooting for badness here. I am I because I want people to understand the fruits of their decision to vote for people who hate our personal mobility. And who hate the fact that we drive and who are unwilling to operate in the reality of how people want to live their lives and in choose I said. Instead in choose perpetual, adolescence we liked by cycles, and we like buses, and if we just make driving painful enough, everybody's gonna give in and jump on and Choo Choo train a be shipped around like a package, and it's ever going to happen. That's I think that's a terrific point. Todd, by way of it being an insane point. This is this is I mean, unless you sane point unless you anticipate landfill or something that's going to actually expand the geography in some fashion. I don't know how you actually antipates that we are going to do more to accommodate more cars when it's full. It's full. Expanding lanes like they've done this time. So they've expanded the I five lanes they painted new lanes. When the Choo Choo train, stole a bunch of lanes on the bridge. They suddenly painted new lanes. Plus, I've heard this thing about computer driven cars, which will be controlled by Ray. Great. One. I'm never going to be in one. But that's okay. Other people are and that that smooths out the commute and the folks who are building all this transit infrastructure. They know that they want to embedded in our lives because once it's all built, oh, you can't fire the government workers. It's not an insane point, Mike, you know, this year reported that the executive director of the Washington State Department transportation, Roger Millar said I refuse to work congestion. He's a guy who wants us all shoved into the city. So we all live in the beautiful beautiful towers downtown. He said as much well, he didn't exactly that's that's somewhat out of context what he was actually saying when he was talking about that is that there are certain areas that congestion were not going to solve by building more lanes, and that's entirely true. We aren't there isn't even room for them. If you wanna go down I five in any stretch that is inside a populated area where the problems exist and find me that extra space. I'd be delighted let's built or not actually going to build up. Let's build tunnels for cars versus tiny little tunnels for future. This is a tunnel that we're talking about right now that was built for cars. It's not it's built for people to avoid downtown. It's built. With thirty three percent fewer lanes in the then divide tat. It's built to make sure people bypass downtown. It's not built with any notion of getting people downtown micro you seriously suggesting needed. There's not a warrant cars at there's not that they're not killing lanes and trying to make it harder to drive that's not part of the design. Well, of course that I mean, I don't know what you mean by a war on cars first off. I mean that sounds like that sounds like language designed to make me respond to something that doesn't actually exist. So let's just let's remove that. And let's just talk about whether or not you can actually build enough infrastructure to make everyone be able to drive by themselves in their own car anywhere in any populated metropolitan area on the planet. And you can't I think our water makes it impossible for that to happen. Because you're talking about something similar that we saw in Boston during the big dig where you're going under rivers and under bays and underwater, and that is such a huge overall project. She's not it's not feasible without mean by the Warren cars is the war in cars where people. Have said we need to make it more difficult to drive downtown. We need to insert pain. There would even do simple things. Here's a simple thing that could make downtown a much more joyful place. All the cars stopped all the walkers walk. That'd be really easy. They don't wanna do that. They want to advantage transit which moves the fewest percentage of people in terms of finding space. I say buildup double I five I love to see a double triple deck. I five I'd like to see that to move people the way they want to be moving. But maybe that just makes me all wrong headed in that. I want to respond to what people are going to do pray for some food you trade, then a state income tax for that double decker on I five state income taxes illegal unless it's equally Levy a tax to pay for that double decker. I would add efficiencies to government, I would instantly efficiencies, and let's do this. We're going to talk about paying things. Why don't we have transit be self-supporting? Why don't we have people who ride the Choo Choo train pay seventy percent of their fair like they do in terms of the ferries, etc. Why don't we do that? Instead of have all the people who drive their cars be forced to subsidize this to the tune of thirty or forty. Thousand bucks per year for some of us. I'll never train. Well. Yeah. But you're benefiting from it being there. No, I'm not you're also paying for public schools that you are not attending I'm assuming although you know, you did complete sixth grade. Correct. Well.
