A police patrol from Komárno stopped Spišiak, but it is now known how much he was fined. Normally, drivers who exceed the speed limit by 38 km/h can be fined up to €150 on the spot. Interior Ministry spokesman Gábor Grendel told Sme that Spišiak would respect any punishment that he was given.

Spišiak also told TA3 that he would take responsibility and accept any punishment. After he took up his current job as police chief, Spišiak declared war on speeding and reckless driving, promising high fines and suspended driving licences for those he dubbed “road pirates”.
