    Unless there is a substantial contrast between the road surface and the roof of the car you won't see them because they are too small, traveling at speed and blending in with the 1/8 inch wide strip of asphalt you are looking at from several thousand feet away.

    Because roads are bigger than cars, Einstein.

    probably cause the cars are closer to the ground
