One court just north of Bangkok is providing drive through service to ensure social distancing and protect people from a potential return of the coronavirus. People can now stay in their cars, or on their motorbikes, when they file complaints or submit documents to the Thanyaburi Provincial Court.

The service is supported the Supreme Court president who wants to bring in more technology and innovative ideas. Just last week the Supreme Court started using video for the verdict delivery process. The move ensures social distancing, and in turn, speeds up process, a plus for inmates waiting on verdicts to get them released.

Last Tuesday, a Supreme Court justice read a verdict for a drug case for the first time using a video conference call.
