My girlfriend and I are planning to drive from Vancouver, BC to LA in December. (a 14 day back and forth trip) Here are some of my concerns and I would greatly appreciate if anyone could provide some clues.
1. Would it be less safe for Asians to sleep in the car at those truckstops?
2. We're planning to borrow my uncle's Volvo XC90 for the roadtrip. Would it be less safe (in terms of attracting a bad guy) since it's a better car? (say I park in front of my room if I chose to stay in a budget motel)
3. Would it be safer to stay close to citycenter instead of some rural area along the I5?
