Depending on the vehicle, operating the clutch can really bother my blown out L4 and L5, and if I’m dealing with in town traffic, texting is almost impossible.
I gave up on having to have a stick shift 20 years ago. I don’t miss spilling my beer up my ass crack when trying to shift one bit.
I’ll take a slushbox over a stick every day of the week. Snow don’t make no never mind to me.
