If I'm making a right...
If I'm making a right turn at a red light camera and I get caught in the middle of my turn as the right turn arrow goes red would I be in the clear? I heard there is a slight "grace period " so I hope I'm in the clear. I started my turn on yellow but it went red as I was half way. I hope I'm fine. Am I? Nothing is 100 percent but what do you think?

is it likely that I won't even receive a ticket ?

Yes, it is likely that you would not receive a ticket since you were in the middle when the light turned red.
