Ask a Trooper

Question: Is it illegal to coast in neutral?

Answer: It is not illegal, however it was at one point. The 1937 law stated, “Coasting.  The driver of any motor vehicle when traveling upon a down grade shall not coast with the gears of such vehicle in neutral. The driver of a commercial motor vehicle when traveling upon a down grade shall not coast with the clutch disengaged.” In the 2014 effort to clean up the state law books, Governor Mark Dayton and the Legislature repealed the law. It is now legal to coast downhill in neutral.

If you have any questions concerning traffic related laws or issues in Minnesota, send your questions to Sgt. Troy Christianson – Minnesota State Patrol at 2900 48th Street NW, Rochester, Minn. 55901-5848. (Or reach him at Troy.Christianson@state.mn.us)
