I think i get part of that from a different person everytime at the car wash i go to setting it on my jeep everytime with about 1 or two clicks that does zero, and the other half is friends and family when i drive some of their cars. So certainly not a nationwide sampling but in just my opinion they are rarely used and when they are many people dont seem to set them with enough force to be effective.
