Question:

You are driving down a steep hill. Why could keeping the clutch down or rolling in neutral for too long be dangerous?

A Your vehicle will pick up speed
explanation

Driving in neutral or with the clutch down for long periods is known as ‘coasting’. There will be no engine braking and your vehicle will pick up speed on downhill slopes. Coasting can be very dangerous because it reduces steering and braking control.
