The WVDOH manages over 34 thousand miles of state roads and handles highway research, safety and weight enforcement, outdoor advertising contiguous to state roads, dissemination of highway information, and roadside development. The West Virginia Department of Transportation records and studies crash data to use for the purpose of improving safety and decreasing fatalities, injuries and property damage incurred in traffic accidents. In 2003, there were 51,376 crashes in West Virginia. 16,763 of these were injury crashes, 364 were fatal crashes, and 34,249 resulted in property damage only.

West Virginia operates under a Compulsory Insurance Law which requires all registered vehicles to maintain a certain amount of liability insurance. When you register or re-register your vehicle, you must sign a statement attesting to the fact that your vehicle is insured. Like in most states, you must carry proof of your insurance policy at all times. All registered vehicles are subject to random verification. The minimum amount of coverage you must have on each vehicle is $10 thousand for property damages, $20 thousand to cover one injury or death per accident, and $40 thousand to cover more than one injury or death resulting from an accident.
