The sanction against unauthorised road use is public administrative penalty, which is imposed by the police. The penalty may be imposed in two ways:

- on-site by stopping the road user during the control and imposing the penalty on the driver.

- without stopping the road user on-site, based on the principle of objective liability, imposed on the owner/operator registered for the vehicle

In addition to the above, control and sanctioning functions are also performed at the border-crossing checkpoints. The penalty imposed without stopping can be collected retrospectively; i.e. when the unauthorised road user returns to Hungary.
