That's assuming you want to detect *your* car getting targeted. With laser, if you've been targeted, it's already too late.

Mounting it high maximises the chance of you picking up some ricocheting beams from someone else's car getting targeted... and you're therefore more likely to detect the bogeyman *before* he zaps you.
