Got pulled over!

First time posting, I recently ran into a situation myself where dispatch was telling me that I could use line5 to drive my tractor trailer, empty, to the nearest safe haven after delivery. From what I understand this was not the intended use of personal conveyance/line5 and it seems like the FMCSA agrees. The quote below is from the background information provided in paragraph 2 of the FMCSA proposed changes to the interpretation, link here hopefully FMCSA Proposed changes

"The previous guidance, which required the CMV to be unladen, was written for combination vehicles, where the driver could readily detach the trailer and use the unladen tractor for personal conveyance."

On top of that, this circumstance in particular is called out explicitly as being a continuation of the trip under section b3 of the proposal.

"Continuation of a CMV trip in interstate commerce, even after the vehicle is unloaded. In this scenario, on-duty time does not end until the driver reaches a location designated or authorized by the carrier for parking or storage of the CMV, such as a permanent residence, authorized lodging, or home terminal."
