What do you mean? Just stay in gear while you take a big fat bite of your jumbo burrito, or text someone on your "hands free" mounted device. Modern problems require Modern solutions.

Since you say limbs I don't even wanna know what your left foot is doing that causes such a ruckus.

Not to start a pissing match here, but I'm sorry, arguing about a manual being better is about making yourself feel better, more superior or more important.

I have absolutely no problem with someone preferring a manual. That is simply a choice. As is someone preferring or being happy with an automatic.

I will end this by simply saying that F1 cars are automatics

F1 cars are probably the worst thing you could've used as an example. They're literally a different realm of vehicle, not even street legal.

Just how often are some of you guys shifting? Does everybody have a stop sign every block or something??

You have these?



Both my hands are free about 98% of the time I am driving.
