Natural disasters are becoming stronger and more frequent. The only thing worse than a crisis situation is negative human behavior connected to it, which intensifies tragedy. Pinellas County has the highest population density in the sunshine State.  It's a peninsula bordered by Tampa Bay on the east, gulf of Mexico on the west and the mouth on the south. It is better known by the name of  it's two largest cities, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. I am one of 40,000 visually impaired residents here.  The definition of legally blind means an individual cannot obtain a drivers license by law due to their poor ssight. My son has been hesitant to acquire his because of anxiety . On the other hand, my daughter's  procrastination is from depression. Those who can actually operate motor vehicles with no problem will only be able to escape to the north it bridges are compromised  from a major storm.  Me and my kids had no choice but to hunker down during hurricane Maria. News stations reported things like water down fuel sold by unscrupulous gas station operators that crippled cars on already congested roadways.  These same blocked thorough fairs would be useless to those who took Greyhound or chartered tour buses. Then, there were airlines that canceled flights after  excepting payment from customers choosing to flee to safety via sky . Boats are virtually obsolete needing to navigate choppy waters.  The one option currently not available is train service.  This would provide a relatively traffic free exit during emergencies as well as a convenient transportation method during normal business or vacation days. Here is a polite but urgent nudge to politicians and big corporations possibly overlooking low income folks such as retired seniors, military veterans and disabled communities. The 2018 hurricane season is predicted to be extra dangerous.  Able-bodied citizens that voted no on proposals like ObamaRail and greenlight Pinellas should simply picture the streets around this Resort market-metropolitan area during Super Bowl LV for added motivation. Snowbirds and other foreign visitors have a special invitation to participate.
