Best Answer

Any unnecessary shifts cause additional wear on the shift mechanism, but that's a minor consideration. At a long signal light or train crossing, it's better for the transmission to shift into neutral than to keep it in drive with foot on the brake, or if a manual, better in neutral than holding in the clutch all that time.
