So that people can see over cars in front of them. Periscopes will retractable through the sun-roof.

[Wrongfellow], why would you want to do something simpler? Next you'll be wanting cheaper and more reliable! Add-on_20pseudo_20SUV_20kit

       21, explain.

       Yeah, I don't see how any of the standard m-f-d reasons apply here.   

       Actually I nearly posted this the other day, as a simpler version of the "Add-on pseudo SUV kit", so [+] from me.

       Ah, OK, I'll agree with "redundant"...

       But why is Will retractable? Oh, I see. He's a grower, not a shower...

       So, how about just a small alteration to the post? The periscope goes down instead of up, for people who suffer from vertigo but who ended up buying an SUV by mistake?

       Thought this was "Cats with periscopes". Would provide an alternative to the tail from which to sling kitty.

       I posted some time ago (many years ago, that is, cannot find it now) an idea to have cameras on drones or balloons that zoom in upon the subscriber's request. You'd need only one drone for every 1000 cars or so, so it wouldn't be that expensive. At least not the high-availability subscription plan.
