I am so glad I found this website. I am going to be traveling with my children this week. It is the first time I have ever traveled alone and done all the driving. Unfortunately I will not have a co-pilot on this trip to help with the details.
We will be leaving Houston heading to Arizona, I would really love to cut down on the drive time and travel the I-10 West route, but I am apprehensive in doing so, because of all the media booha regarding safety or lack of, along the Mexico border. Is there truth in what is being said "that I-10 West (El Paso/Mexico Border) is the most dangerous road in America", or is that propaganda and hype?
Is I-10 West safe to travel? Where should I stop and fill up the vehicle? Are there any cell phone dead zones I need to be made aware of? Are the roads actually safer in daytime than they are in the night? Are there any no no spots I should be made aware of?
Thank you in advance to any and all who take the time to read and respond to this post. May you have safe travels and pleasant journeys.
