Vortex strake device and method for reducing the aerodynamic drag of ground vehicles

If I were to think of this as a rain diverter on a roof, such as found over an entry-way I'd say yes, it works.

However we are talking air pressures and vortexes which have a life far from and beyond the moving body.
