Explanation: More context would be helpful, but I really don't think a car has two gearshifts on the left and right side of the steering column. More likely these are the control levers for the headlights/wipers and the blinker.
In my car (a 2000 Mazda) the gearshift (automatic transmission) is not even on the steering column, but on a console between the two front seats.
However, on the right side of my steering column is the control lever for my headlamps and windshield wipers, and on the right side is the lever for my blinker.
I hope this helps more than it confuses!
Best regards, Beth
