The number of people who have been disqualified from driving has decreased by 39% this year.
According to Freedom of Information (FOI) figures, there has also been a 13% drop in the amount of penalty points handed out.
These new figures confirm a significant reduction in driver disqualifications and penalty point notices issued this year, due to the pandemic.
In the first seven months of 2019, 8,049 people were disqualified from driving.
While 4,877 people were banned from driving between January and July this year.
Court activity was scaled back during the height of the pandemic.
There has also been a big reduction in the amount of penalty point notices issued by the Gardaí.
They fell from just over 117,000 to just over 101,000.
Solicitor Jason O'Sullivan says the figures are not surprising.
"COVID-19 is still causing serious delays and backlogs at every court level, and more so for these types of road traffic offences.
"Furthermore, the investigations and prosecution of these matters have not been a priority for the Guards as their resources have been stretched in trying to enforce and police the ongoing restrictions".
The number of drivers who got penalty points for driving with a mobile phone fell by one-third during the same time frame.
