Yes it would help to know what you are driving. But in General this is a feature the the Manufacturers have put in to help in the prevention of Car Jacking. It was also started a while back to keep children from opening the car door while it is moving. As to why it does not lock all the time you put it in gear that is where it would help to know what make and model you are driving.
