If you are going to endanger others by being reckless you should be placed in jail, license suspended, and a giant fee.
Who said the contrary? I'm not saying its cool to drive recklessly, I'm saying that punishment should be just enough to deter the behavior. You are being all emotional, but you fail to see that it serves no purpose to send to jail people that could be kept civilized without that. Jail cost money, it destroys lives (yes, reckless driving too, that's why its illegal and you want to have some adequate punishment to it), and it serves no supplementary purpose that couldn't be achieved with the appropriate fine, at least for first time offenders.
