Recently, not too far from here on interstate 80... a custodian was killed. Between 7-9 pm.
The shooter turned himself in to a LEO helping another motorist.

This shooting was random, with no readily apparent motive. If it were me, I'd wait until daylight if at all possible. If not, I too would carry a gun "approved" or not. A job is not worth my life. If I couldn't do it in the daylight because of my seniority or the shift I'm on, I'd have as much light as possible.
I deal with truckers every day in my job. Most likely, at night in a rest stop... they're sleeping. It's hard, sometimes very hard, to rouse them from sleep.
Be careful, be safe.
It could be worse!
Carry a fake wallet with $5 & an expired credit card or two. Leave your valuables & real wallet locked up in your car; by all means, don't carry your keys on you. stash them somewhere you can find them. if someone takes your keys, then he's got your car -- perhaps by fishing with the remote -- and he'll probably have your house keys and your address (i bet most people keep their ins. & registration in the glove box, right?) and, if applicable, your garage door opener.
i have nothing inside my car with my name or address. my registration & insurance are locked in the trunk & i've disabled the interior trunk lever (which obviously doesn't help if someone conks me on the head & get my keys).

Probably an idiotic question. But can you move these trash cans? If so, I'd sure want to move the one on the left more left so that I wouldn't have to be emptying it in between two trucks. Plus that little bit of tree placement allows for cover once its been safely cleared for potential threats with a surefire light sweep when approaching. Then I could make a wide sweep of the parking lot to stay on the outskirts of the trucks while having that swivel view of your AOR.
