I was issued a red light ticket, but I was simply making a right turn on red. Why did this happen?
Florida Statute 316.075(1)(c) requires a driver to stop before entering a crosswalk or if none, before the intersection when the light is red.

Once stopped, a driver may begin to make a turn on red after determining that there are no pedestrians or oncoming traffic in the roadway.

There is no blanket ability for a driver to turn right on red without first stopping.
