Fair point, as they allow a snap judgment (probably derogatory) on the driver :)
My own views. For better or worse :)

Can't imagine them working at motorway speeds...at best noisy and loads of drag...at worst it will bend/break/fall off.

I used to have tassels on a bike. It was a lovely pink one with a basket and training wheels. I never got as far as Clacton and only my aunts house down the road :)
