Keeping the clutch down for long periods? Thoughts and Opinions ...

Posted 14th Nov 2014
Was just wondering. When people are driving and see traffic lights how do they deaccelerate eg if in fourth?
- I usually go down in gears ... so clutch down ... third... clutch down second ... then first ... Is this bad for the clutch?
- Was just reading that you should in fact just brake and go into first

Also, when coming to traffic lights is it ok to put the car into neutral and coast the car? Like if you are 20mph just pop it into neutral? Is that good or mechanically bad?

Was just wanting to know this.

Thanks
