Drive Drunk, Get Tweeted
Ever been on a ride-a-long with a trooper?...Now you can! During the inter-agency Target Zero Team special DUI emphasis on November 26, 2011,one of the Washington State Patrol’s civil service employees, Ms. Jessica James, will be riding along with Trooper Guy Gill tweeting from his patrol car. During this “virtual ride-a-long,” you’ll be getting actual information from real-life traffic stops as they happen from 6:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
This is a great opportunity for citizens to follow along and see exactly what happens during a DUI emphasis. You’ll hear about traffic violations, field sobriety tests, collisions, and all the other events that occur during the emphasis.
Use the hashtag #WSPtweetalong to join in the conversation or ask questions. You can #tweetalong with Trooper Gill and Ms. James by following @wspd1pio on Twitter.
