So, waiting for my Model S, I'm driving home tonight in my ICE in the drizzle and realize that the wiper stalk in both of my current cars is in the exact same position as Model S's gear selector. It has become almost automatic to give the stalk a tap down (or in my other car, a tap up) to wipe the window once when it's drizzling or if spray is coming off the car in front.
Suddenly, I thought what if muscle memory causes me to hit the gear selector by mistake when I'm driving along in my (future) Model S!
I suppose tapping it down if it's already in "Drive" wouldn't do any harm, but as I say, my other car is a tap up to wipe the window. What would tapping the gear selector up do in a Model S under way?
Quite a few of my past cars have had wiper stalks on the right side, and I don't think I've had a car with a column shifter since the late '70s.
Anyone done this, or am I being ridiculously paranoid?
