Well, let's say around 10% of people do this:

If I ever forget where I've parked in a crowded parking lot I set off my car alarm...I find it real quick that way....it works wonders....lol
In a parking lot that fits 6K cars, that would be 600 car alarms going off. It's no wonder nobody cares to look.

OTOH, I have a specialty made antenna topper - unique to my own car. If I fail to spot it... I hit the horn button. Not the alarm.

600 alarms going off...LOL...well, that would certainly be amusing to observe...

I notice alot of elderly folk decorate their antennas...good idea.

No, in my neck of the woods people don't look because they don't want to get involved....it's sad when people wear blinders.
