It's out of control! Not safe to walk, bicycle, or drive anywhere in St. Pete! We all know it, but like the people watching the parade, no one will admit the King has no clothes!

The friends and relatives of the German Tourist who passed away today after being struck by a car on Coffee Pot Bayou will be certain to conclude that perhaps America is not such a safe place to visit. Certainly not St. Pete!
