Gov. Dayton eliminates neutral coasting law in MN

In an effort to clean up the state law books, Gov. Mark Dayton and the Minnesota state Legislature have made it legal to coast downhill in neutral.

Here's the original 1937 law:
Quote:
Sec. 74. Coasting.(a) The driver of any motor vehicle when traveling upon a down grade shall not coast with the gears of such vehicle in neutral.

(b) The driver of a commercial motor vehicle when traveling upon a down grade shall not coast with the clutch disengaged.
