If one comes late to davening, he may not start SE unless he knows that he will reach Elokai Netzor before the chazzan reaches Kedusha, as it says in the SA and MB.

What if he is not sure whether he will reach it in time (he is not sure if he is only a few moments late, or if he is very late, or he is also not sure how fast the chazzan davens)? May he start SE?



You have to use your judgment, if you think you will make it or not.
