Almost 2,000 traffic violations were recorded over a period of just three days, police said on Monday.
Between Friday night and Monday morning, 1,798 violations were recorded, with many of them constituting serious offences.
Of the offences, 884 related to speed, 23 drunk driving. Two tested positive for drugs. The other 889 violations were for other offences.
A total of eight vehicles were confiscated, including one car, four motorbikes and three mopeds for illegal mechanical modifications.
A further 39 written warnings were issued to driver who were found to be committing minor offences.
Harsher penalties were introduced on October 1 in a bid to overhaul much of the road safety programme and reduce Cyprus’ high amount of fatalities.
Justice Minister Emily Yiolitis said last week that the new fines would bring results after a reasonable amount of time, if not immediately.
