The devil is in the details. Do your research at a local level. Look for both any rules as they are now as well as how they may be changed in the future. I would use extreme caution and assume guilty until proven innocent. That said, some subdivisions in my state have rules that carry zero weight.
I need to add that the rules, if any, might work in your favor. If so, wonderful, but even so you need to check to see how they may be changed in the future.
Good decisions come from experience. Experience comes from making bad decisions. Mark Twain
