Idiot cam - minimum specification

Hi. My wife is repeatedly encountering idiot drivers, both accidental and deliberate, when out cycling on her own, so we’re getting a camera set up.

In folk’s experience, what is the minimum resolution and frame rate needed to make sure we get a good shot of registration plate numbers?

I’ve got my eyes on a 2nd hand Hero 3 White, but it only does 25fps at 1080p and only goes up to 60fps at 720p. Is that enough to ensure a sufficiently sharp and detailed image?

“Low light” performance isn’t important.

Thank you.....
