I would suggest that to clear up all grey areas, you go to a police station, ask to chat to a traffic officer and highlight your dilemma.
They're there to help and if local will also advise as to local pitfalls and will be aware of you in the future. keep them on your side and they'll stay on yours.
Seriously though Luke, you could do a lot worse than hearing it from the guys that would stop you if you were doing something wrong.
And if they can't help, they will point you in the right direction.
You're already asking, so that's a big step forward rather than just not giving a **** and doing it anyway.
