shocking announcements, one on his transition team, and the other on one of his key campaign platforms. andy rose reports on that new team and a shocking change on obama care. president-elect donald trump has named his transition team and with it, announced his first shake up. trump has now named vice president-elect mike pence as the head of the team. not new jersey governor chris chri the team for the last few months leading up to the election. (((make full screen of statement))) gov. chris christie/-r- new jersey: "i am proud to have run the pre- election phase of the transition team along with a thoroughly professional and dedicated team of people." sources familiar with the process say intensifying scrutiny over christie's role in the "bridgegate scandal" in which two of his former aides were convicted, led to pence being chosen as transition head. christie himself has denied wrongdoing over "bridgegate" christie will serve as vice-chairman along with
giuliani, doctor ben carson, former house speaker newt gingrich and retired army lieutenant general mike flynn. the announcement comes as trump sat down for an interview after meeting with president obama and said he will look to keep certain aspects of obamacare, a far cry from what he promised on the campaign trail reporter: let me ask you about obamacare, which you say you're going to repeal and replace. when you replace it, are you going to make sure that people with preconditions are still covered? donald trump/ pr happens to be one of the strongest assets. reporter: you're going to keep. also children living with their parents for an extended period. reporter: you're going to keep that. donald trump/ president-elect: we're going to very much try to keep that. it adds cost but it's very much something we're anything to try to keep. someone upset with donald trump being elected president is turning to vandalism to vent frustrations! obscenities against the president-elect

crashes.. and often operated by people who have no business being on the road. for more than a year.. contact 13 has been tracking now - contact-13 chief investigator darcy spears asks,.. are they a necessary nuisance or downright dangerous? these images of 18-year-old maggie mortensen... bandaged and bed- ridden... :46 marlene: went up to the hospital and seen her on a breathing machine. ... are burned in her mother's mind. : 58 marlene: i almost collapsed on the floor.
severe road rash, a fractured skull and a brain bleed, maggie is lucky. she and her boyfriend, who was driving the scooter, didn't die. contact 13 has documented far too many scenes of mangled scooters and lost lives. the danger growing as more of these two- wheeled vehicles take over valley roads. /nat break/ metro has seen six fatal scooter accidents so far this year, which means, on average, someone is dying every other month. people crash on scooters about every other day with 175 collisions i jurisdiction so far this year. 16:09 chuck callaway/lvmpd: on these vehicles you don't have to have a helmet and you also don't have to have insurance. so if you were to put your child on there with you... you'd be doubling down on danger. what's worse, scooters are often piloted by people who aren't allowed to drive. 20:40 mo denis: if somebody can't get a drivers license then they really shouldn't be on the road. take maggie mortensen's boyfriend, for example. 3:52 d : he never should have been driving that scooter?
3:40 darcy: did he have a drivers license? marlene: no. they gave him a ticket for it. metro has written 178 tickets to unlicensed moped drivers so far this year. 12:40 chuck callaway/lvmpd dir. of intergovernmental services: i think that's one of the biggest misconceptions is people think that--they've lost their license potentially in a dui or maybe they never got a license--but they think they all these vehicles at ewing brothers have been impounded because they were involved in duis, accidents, or they were stolen or abandoned. metro has seen 497 thefts this year. and according to the national in vegas ranks number two in the nation for stolen scooters and motorcycles--second only to new york city. aside from being routinely involved in crime... 17:35 sen. mo denis: i think individuals feel like they're just a nuisance on the roads. but state senator mo denis says they're a necessary nuisance--cheap, fuel-efficient, easy to park, and... 20:22 mo denis: there are some individuals that no matter
them. denis co-sponsored a new law that took effect november first. it requires mopeds to be registered, inspected and get license plates. law enforcement hopes that'll make them and their drivers safer and easier to track, but it won't cut down on scenes like this. 22:40 honk and street nats with scooter slowing cars 13:54 chuck callaway: with an actual moped, since they can't obviously they should stay on roadways where they simply can't keep up, often disregarding surrounding drivers. 13:34 chuck: they have the potential to obstruct traffic, slow down vehicles and then other drivers get frustrated and try to cut around them and maybe cause accidents. so it's a very serious issue. no one knows that better than marlene stevens. 4:25 marlene: i don't think they have any business being on the road because of how dangerous they are. and what could happen to... like my daughter.
