    Well, you got the license plate clearly, now it's time for the police to track that person down and issue one of the biggest traffic fines in history.

    All depends on laws, not possible in Arkansas for example. Really should not be possible anywhere unless there is a clear shot of the driver.

    Last winter I actually had a driver (smoking weed) chase me in reverse down a bike path, a few hundred yards from the nearest place you can legally drive a car, to threaten me for "looking at him like that".

    The resulting dual-camera gopro video was a complete disappointment, as the audio is ruined by the barking of his pit bull leaning out the back window, and since the path is dark and snow-covered, it just looks like a random confrontation in a parking lot or something. I didn't bother uploading.

    And he wasn't alone. Once we hit the end of daylight savings time, there was SUVs driving nightly about 2 km through the woods on the same bike path, to bypass a very slow part of the city.
