What is Lane Departure Warning?

January 3rd, 2019 by

Lane Keeping Assist

If you’ve heard of Lane Departure Warning, it’s probably pretty obvious what it does; it can keep Arlington drivers from drifting out of their lane, prevent collisions, and keep the roads safe. As part of the Honda Sensing™ safety suite, Lane Keeping Assist, Collision Mitigation Braking System™and Road Departure Mitigation Systems are standard in many new Honda models, and combine to offer more than traditional lane departure systems. See how this safety feature can protect you and yours for every trip through Memphis.

How Does Lane Departure Warning Work?

This system uses multiple cameras to detect lane markings and where your wheels are in relation to the lines. If your tires drift past the designated line, a beeping alert and flashing indicator will alert you to the error, prompting you to steer back into safety. If you don’t course correct, your seat and steering wheel will vibrate, shaking you to attention. This feature can prevent collisions from:

  • A vehicle sticking out too far in an adjoining lane
  • Sideswiping
  • A rollover
  • And more

This helpful system goes to work the moment you start your vehicle, offering a second pair of eyes on the Cordova streets. Lane Departure Warning does not activate while using your turn signal.

Lane Departure Warning Options

Honda drivers have the ability to customize their alert settings to better support safer driving. You can change the feedback and warning types, including:

  • Haptic feedback warnings like seat and wheel vibrations
  • Visual alerts with a flashing lane marking symbol
  • Adjustable audible warning levels
  • The ability to disable the system
  • Highway’s edge recognition

Lane Keeping Assist can even automatically adjust the brakes to compensate and keep you in your lane and on the road.
