Oh honey, when you're hitting stuff and posing possible danger to yourself and others, I'd say it's a sign to take some time away from driving. Don't make your overall situation worse by a bad accident or an arrest, etc. The fact you're even asking the question tells me that you've answered it yourself in your own mind. You're looking for confirmation? You got it - right here. I agree with you.
