Everything is in the right lane, no fast lane.


Thanks to help from this thread response has been edited from 2016 Mailibu to 2010-2013 Camaro with an Alabama Bicentennial License plate, probably "factory red stripe." Maybe 2000 sold in the state of Alabama?

The Birmingham police will not decipher this plate because "waving" a firearm is a misdemeanor.

At 17:04 2-22-2019, Birmingham, Alabama on 20/59 N just before merging to I-20 E, in control of my lane, turned my turn signal on for a bit to turn to the other lane but did not. Not sure exactly what he was upset about. This fellow driving a black 2010-2013 Camaro, points a Glock with an extended magazine at me twice, long and slow. The first time parallel to the vehicle. My response was honking and yelling, that is probably why there is a shot of him pulling the Glock a second time in this video. Driving a taller vehicle ads some advantage. After noticing me talking with phone headset, he dangerously exited on the 1st Avenue North exit.

The dashcam video is about 300K in total, 1080P, Sony sensor but cannot get the correct license plate number. No luck uploading the .mov file to photobucket. Have two .jpg files .png screen shots.

The first time he pointed the Glock the vehicles were parallel, this is a screen shot from the video of the 2nd time to brandish the Glock, if you look closely you can see the Glock in this .png:

This is one screen shot of the license plate, hard to say what is the best frame, at 1080P there are maybe 20 to 50 good frames.

Do you know anyone that .mov video in slow motion or the attached .png files to get the correct License plate number? I have already contacted the police but cannot get the correct license plate number. A good guess was JBO642, but according to the local police that is not a valid plate.

No I did not get an ID on the license plate visually, instead choosing to call the police. City population is about 210,000 and there is a lot of irresponsible firearms use in certain communities.

Police said it sounds like an an Alabama Motorsports tag or Alabama Bicentennial plate?

Is it possible to attach images? Youtube and similar is going to convert the .mov for web use and loose quality? If the plate is hard to read that might be a mistake. Better to use some type of web hosting like Photobucket? The rear lights on this vehicle looks like 2016 Malibu?

First thing, that car is a Camaro. The back end, C pillar gives it away.

I’m surprised, assuming you sent the imagery to the police, they didn’t take it and run with it.
There are multiple video labs that support law enforcement that enhance the picture.
Further, that’s a relatively unique vehicle with the stripe on the back so they should be able to lookup a subset of plates and owners from the make, model and specialty plate.

I just installed recording cameras (front and rear) on my vehicle because there has been a marked uptick in idiot drivers, aggression and road-rage for no good cause lately. Biggest issue I’ve encountered is intentional red light running. Average of five red light runners on my morning commute each day (only 4 miles). I’ve also witnessed road rage involving brandishing not involving me but witnessed. About ten days ago, I saw a person throwing cans at a Jeep because the Jeep was driving the speed limit. I felt it was time to have video records, finished the installation of the cameras yesterday.

It looks like the OP has an answer and this was also only vaguely "firearms related," within the meaning of TFL's mission statement. That said, closed.
