Although I've always thought my (18 year old) brother is something of a little shit, I've never really considered going to the filth about him until today. This evening, after eating out, he was driving me and my family (4, all told) home in a small hatchback (my parents') and refused to put the lights on, despite it being dusk and other drivers having theirs on, and our reasonable requests to do so ('anonymous, please put the lights on'). He simply refused and kept going, eventually braking aggressively and shouting that 'everyone's a driver!' (I've been qualified for just under 5 years, my mum and dad since the dinosaurs), refusing to see sense.
He then took off, doing at least 25-28 on a 20 mph road with speed bumps. At this point I demanded that he stop and let me out, but 'I'd had my chance', refusing again on my second and third requests and he kept going. I eventually said unless he stopped the car I would call the police, upon which he duly did, with much snarling and all that wank. We all got out of the car and he fucked off to god knows where. AFAIK he's still driving somewhere, gone to a friend's house or wrapped around a lamp post.
My mum and dad basically pretended nothing had happened as we walked home. I wouldn't let it go and said that he is clearly not fit to drive a car (I didn't go so far as 'and needs professional help', for my sins). In any case, my parents don't seem to have any intent of doing anything meaningful concerning his behaviour. He's always been a bit of a prick; in the last two years he's become a really arrogant and selfish asshole, but this is behaviour is genuinely life-threatening, to himself, passengers pedestrians and other motorists.
I am in two minds about what to do. On one hand he might become more of a cunt if I really take matters into my own hands, such as by calling the (non-emergency) filth, and cause bad drama with my parents. On the other, he could end up being responsible for the death or injury of an innocent person. Exactly what I should do next, I don't know. I've tried googling 'what to do if dangerous driving' and other similar search terms but nothing is coming out. Are there any charities that might be able to help out with this? I'd be very grateful for any advice.
