What kind of idiot calls the police dept to complain about traffic.
Fremont Police Department

Please expect delays this evening due to heavy traffic in Fremont.
An earlier fire in Alameda County and a current vehicle stall in Niles Canyon (SR84) is contributing to an already busy afternoon in our City. Transportation Engineers and Police Traffic Officers are monitoring the situation and strategizing ways to help traffic flow in Fremont. Unfortunately I880, I680 and SR84 are all experiencing heavy traffic causing backups in Niles, Mission San Jose, the East/West Industrial area as well as other parts of town.
We we strongly encourage commuters to stay on freeways. Don't trust your apps - attempting shortcuts via Fremont residential areas further congests traffic and may not reduce your drive time. We recommend east bay commuters take I880 north to I580 via 238 in Castro Valley.
Fremont Traffic officers will be rotating to complaint areas throughout the City as best they can over the next several hours. Due to heavy call volume, we ask that motorists not call dispatch with traffic complaints unless they are reporting a collision or emergency situation.
