Appreciate I'm a bit of a dinosaur here, but...

if you steer left with a car, it steers left
if you steer right with a car, it steers right
if you accelerate, it goes. Brake, and the car stops

gear selection and gear awareness should also be absolute with no ambiguity. Simplicity/comprehension is one of the basic principles of safety.

Millions of folks over decades have grown up with manual 1st gear, 2nd gear, 3rd and so on.

Millions of folks over decades have grown up with a visual PRND. To bin this - with no warning or training - seems a tad dodgy to me.

A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.

Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.
