Seriously, I started this habit (quickly memorizing plates) last year after a SUV full of teenagers pulled up slowly beside me on Paradise Drive and sprayed winshield wiper fluid on me. It got on my face but luckily I had my shades on. For some reason I decided to chase them (Not sure what I thought I would do to them if I caught up.........spray/throw water bottle at them? Stupid). After they took off I spotted a CHP in the parking lot of Blackies Pasture off Tiburon Blvd. eating lunch (In-n-Out...mmmmmmm) and gave her the story. She seemed sympathetic and interested in the description of the SUV, but I was so angry I forgot to notice the plates on it. Wasn't really anything she could do at that point.
