Default Lock / Unlock / Open Door mechanism?

Hi,

Mine is a 2012 model. The way the door locks operate today is when the door is locked and even stationary, the door handle when pulled, does not unlock the door.

The lock has to be manually unlocked first.

These have been in the back of my mind:
1. In the event of a crash, passengers won't be able to figure how the door lock works, thus trapped in an overturned burning car.
2. In the event of a submersion, the lock knob is too smooth to grab and unlock.

Most critical is #1, is there any way of modifying it so the door handle will open the door no matter whether the door lock is engaged or not?

Current model cars' door handles will open the door no matter what.

Thank you, Caesar.

Is there a reason you have the doors locked? The first thing we did when we bought the car brand new is to disable that. Here is the quick tech guide:
