The reason the 1-4 skip shift is dangerous is that it when it comes on it instantly turns your car into an under performing econo box. There is no warning it is about to happen, until the light comes on just a set of conditions that are easy to meet when you may be in stressful traffic conditions, think being in heavy traffic trying to merge with traffic in a much faster lane. Your driving a car that can do 0-60 in under 5 seconds, so you think no problem when you want to go from the 15mph slow lane to the 60 mph fast lane. Your watching traffic and not closely looking at the accelerator, then try to shift to second just as you pull out into the small gap in and "1-4 skip shift" hits, and your sub 5 second 0-60 car instantly becomes a 14 second 0-60 car. You can imagine the rest.
