• On The Car Roof

This angle is good to include the car, track, and view from the front in the camera frame. But this position captures much part of your car; if you have a sedan car, then your footage can look dull.

Also, at this position, your car grabs much of attention without any good purpose, instead of tracks or view. Also, your video will look like you captured it from much height.

These are some of the reasons that many people do not like this mounting position.
