What Is Lane Departure Warning?

2019-honda-lanewatch-camera copy

Lane Departure Warning is an innovative Honda safety feature designed to protects drivers from potential collisions and alert them when they’re about to exit their lane. This feature comes standard in most new Honda models and is part of the Honda Sensing™ safety suite. Find out more about this feature at Sussex Honda and how it can protect you on the Hackettstown roads.

How Does LDW Work?

LDW detects lane markings in the road by using the cameras located near the rearview mirror. When your vehicle drifts into the other lane, a visual indicator will be triggered as well as an audio alert. Some Honda models also activate steering wheel and seat vibration which allows you to quickly correct your direction and prevent a collision. However, the system will not go off if you’re using your turn signal. Some instances where this system is used are:

  • When an object is too close your vehicle in the adjoining lane
  • Sideswiping
  • A rollover
  • And more

For most Honda models, LDW doesn’t require any action from the driver, meaning the system automatically turns on when you start the vehicle. However, some models, require you to press a button to activate the feature.

Lane Departure Warning Options

Honda recognizes that every driver is different, which is why this system has customizable options that allow you to program alerts for your specific needs. This unique feature helps you stay safe on the Sparta Twp streets . Some of the things you can adjust include:

  • Haptic feedback warnings
  • Visual alerts
  • Audible warning levels
  • Ability to disable the system
  • Highway’s edge recognition
