Even in some humid environments they reduce sweating and driver fatigue, altough they're not so effective for cooling in such circumstances. But the air renewal is very decisive to improve their efficiency, unlike an A/C which is more effective while on recirculator mode.

When the humidity is high, it's inevitably better to run just the fan ON and leave the water OFF with an evaporative cooler. The air may be hot, but it won't feel like a piss-sauna.

Also, just LOTs of ambient airflow alone will make you "feel" like it's 3-5F cooler even though it's not. The copious airflow is simply evaporating what little moisture there is in your skin away quickly, making it FEEL cooler even though the air isn't cooler.

That roof-mounted wing-shaped box is an evaporative cooler, but uses an external water reservoir, allowing it to have a lower profile than those with a built-in tank.
