Right turn on red (STO #13 & KSA 8-1508 (c)(1) & (2) …find the exact wording

Loose Meaning: AFTER STOPPING, a driver may cautiously enter an intersection while facing a steady red light to make a right turn, —UNLESS there is a pedestrian or a sign to indicate otherwise. Also, the driver must yield the right of way to any vehicle in the intersection. In McPherson, this is a moving violation which draws a $60 fine, plus $75 Municipal Court Cost.
