Reset wiper settings on shutdown

44

Description

When the car is shut off, wipers should also be shut off to prevent damage in case they are frozen to the windshield when the car is started next time. To prevent any unpleasant surprises while driving the wipers should be disabled only until the car starts moving, or the user changes wiper settings. It could also be done only it temperature is below X degrees.

Since this just isn't any ordinary car, please 'Park', the wipers when the Parking brake is activated AND the driver exits the car.
Does the stalk on the MS return to the neutral position, regardless of if the wipers are on or not? My current car does that and I have had to get into the habit of always checking to make sure they are turned off before I get out of the car so the frost doesn't rip the blades off in the morning. If the stalk stays in the on position, it is much less of an issue as it is easier to see that they are on, even if it is only on 'auto' mode and it has stopped raining.

I also agree with 'parking' the wipers.
