The triangle gives our range-finding binococular vision something to work with.

With cars, there are generally distinct, widely-spaced details to judge with, for example the headlights, whether they are lit or not.

It let your brain compute the changing angles of those points, more precisely, the rate of change, which gives you a perception of the speed.
