I seriously doubt anyone got a ticket for this unless it was determined after the fact it was the cause of an accident or admitted to during questioning, but no other driving violations existed.

Im sure the rule originated from a few noob commercial truckers coasting down a hill and discover how fast 80 thousand pounds can go and how difficult it can be to get it back in gear. Rules are just a cause/effect reaction with little research into how effective it would be.
