Superhuman eyesight?

My ten year old son was reading car number plates that were too fast, too far away and at the wrong angle for any of us to read or even believe that it was possible for him to read. We thought he was lying as he reeled off the whole number plate and not just some. My husband went across the road to prove him wrong and get him to admit he was making it up but he wasn't. We even asked people in the restaurant and waiting staff for their opinion and everyone was blown away. I'm totally astonished and slightly freaked out by his sight and I'm hoping someone can explain for me.**Specifics** - I believe it was approx 20-25 metres away and I am under guessing. - He had only 1 or 2 seconds as the cars drove left to right. - Cars would be travelling 30/40 kmph along that road. - We were sitting in the restaurant at night time so not in a car ourselves.
