The state patrol is offering regular Joes and Janes a chance to join a trooper on a ride-a-long — sorta.

Twitter users can hop inside a Washington State Patrol cruiser during a “virtual ride-a-along” Saturday as troopers conduct drunken driving emphasis patrols.

Jessica James, a civil service employee at the agency, plans to join Trooper Guy Gill during the patrol and tweet from the patrol cruiser. Followers can receive information from real-life traffic stops as the events unfold between 6 p.m. Saturday and 3 a.m. Sunday.

The agency said the “virtual ride-a-along” is a valuable opportunity for citizens to learn about traffic violations, field sobriety tests, traffic collisions and more.

Use the hashtag #WSPtweetalong to join in the conversation or ask questions. Follow @wspd1pio to join the social media event.
