7:34 am
when it's a decent commute, it takes more like 25. also, the 101 freeway, northbound 101 coming up to the 80 split, that's not a bad commute, southbound 101, let's go to the peninsula, highway 80 is still slow from pittsburgh to bay point and as you drive to 580, in case you're driving from vasco from 580, 880 is very slow. there's an accident and a lot of slow traffic on 101, and 285. you get the general idea the morning commute is completely under way and there's a lot of slow traffic out there. search 34 let's go back to the desk. >> all right. thank you. a handcuffed man in san jose escaped from bail bondsman and he's still on the loose this morning. this fugitive is wanted for two felonies. ktvu fox 2's jeanine delavega is

7:36 am
each one was 200,$000, so we believe it's important -- $200,000, so we believe it's important to get him into custody. >> reporter: the k9s helped in a door to door search, but it was called off last night. he ran away still wearing handcuffs and it's unknown if he was actually able to slip out of them but if you spot him or know his whereabouts, you are asked to call police. dave? >> reporter: all right, jeanine dell lavega, thank you. and one week after that mass shooting at the community college in oregon, democrats want to expand background check requirements to cover sales at gun shows, as well as online sales. republicans blocked similar legislation in 2013 after the newtown school shooting. with republicans controlling both houses of congress, the democratic effort is not expected to be successful this time around either. the gunman who killed nine

7:39 am
money to bring it back. let me show you the work that was done overnight. we followed along as a construction crew was out on the bridge and they began the process of reinstalling this light display. it includes 25,000 shimmering l.e.d.'s. those lights first went back up in 2013 and they were taken down just two years later after the project was finished, but now, those lights will be shining once again as the eyes of the world turn to the bay area for super bowl 50 coming up in february and that's certainly important here. the foundation behind this project isle illuminates the arts to bring back this piece of contest rare art. we talked to people along the embarcardero are they are excited. >> this is one of the most iconic experiences. i take the train in the morning,
