the papers are not bulging with stories of people convicted in such circumstances.
Maybe not, but here's another example of "one law for them": Crash PC wins driving ban appeal.

She killed someone, yet seems to have got a sympathetic hearing. Shame Mr Freeman (who harmed no-one) wasn't given the same benefit of the doubt.
The defence's mitigation was that [the victims] were crossing Grand Parade from behind parked cars and may have been distracted by another emergency vehicle going the other way.
But . . . moving safely out of the way to allow an emergency vehicle to pass is not a mitigating factor ?
