WVU students got a chance to hop behind the wheel of a DUI simulator on Thursday.

The West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Administration unveiled its upgraded simulator in front of the Mountainlair as part of its statewide tour. A crowd gathered and applauded WVABCA's effort to educate young people about the risks of driving while intoxicated.

Students who went for a test drive experienced the simulators life like system which became increasingly harder to control as the driver's blood alcohol level went up. Students said it was a great learning experience.

WVU student Alexis Randolph said, "I learned that it's definitely not a good idea to drive drunk, that it's very disorienting, and it can cause accidents."

The simulator is also sponsored by the governor's office.
