Can I sleep in my car roadtrip?
Yes, it is safe to sleep in your car! Not once in all that time have I experienced a sketchy situation that made me think I was unsafe. Sure, I have always been with my husband so that alone is safer than solo road tripping, but I have plenty of friends (male and female) who live on the road by themselves.
Can you run out of oxygen sleeping in a car?
There is sufficient oxygen in your vehicle to keep you breathing comfortably for several hours while you sleep. The study did find that if about 9 people or more are in the average car, then oxygen could theoretically be depleted before it could be sufficiently replaced.
Can I sleep in my car at Walmart?
Generally, yes, you can sleep in your car at Walmart. Walmart does not have a corporate-wide policy of allowing people to sleep in their car in their parking lots. It’s up to each store manager to decide. Most Walmart store managers tend to not issue a policy on the matter, preferring not to do anything about it.
Can you get a ticket for sleeping in your car?

Though barefoot driving is not illegal, local regulations could prohibit it. While not illegal, barefoot driving is not encouraged.
Why is driving barefoot illegal?
Loose-fitting footwear like thongs (flip-flops) can easily be caught up underneath the pedals, causing people to lose control of their car with disastrous effect. This is why many driving instructors prefer people to drive barefoot over loose-fitting shoes, or even high-heels.

Will Walmart tow my car if I leave it overnight?
Generally, if a car is left for more than 2 nights in a Walmart car park, yes, you run the risk of your car being towed. But if you do decide to leave your car unattended overnight, do so at your own risk, as it is up to the store manager or security guard to tow abandoned cars.
