It's not different to pointing a loaded gun at people. Penalise to reflect that. We have the technology and capacity to finally say "there is no excuse now".
I saw a car turn left at an intersection the other night and almost get cleaned up by a car that was racing another car at the lights. The road was clear when the driver turned left but the racing driver came so close to crashing into them it made me feel sick. I don't think that any kind of driver training will stop that kind of behaviour, so it is down to penalties to try to reduce that kind of thing.
