Many companies have mobile radios for their businesses, in regular passenger vehicles. It is just paranoid to feel that an antenna would draw attention. I'm sure that there are hundreds, if not thousands of hams who live in the for mentioned states who have no trouble. I live in New York, and have never been questioned.

I have had one or more ham antennas on my cars since 1968 and never once have had an inquiry from any law enforcement officer.
