Accuse them of being in cahoots with the lads

That might actually be the case. Policemen's kids are quite often problematic youngsters.

I don't think you should shrug this failure off as just something that happens everywhere, because it doesn't. This was life-threatening behaviour on the part of the driver. On the basis of the response we have had here from the police to stuff that has been much less serious - shed break-ins and such - I am reasonably confident that it wouldn't happen here.

I think a letter to your MP with a copy to the local press would be in order.
