It is illegal to operate a motor vehicle in West Virginia with a blood alcohol level of eight hundredths of one percent (0.08%) or more, by weight. If you are charged with DUI, your privilege to operate a motor-vehicle will be revoked, and you will also be facing a significant period of confinement in jail.
