How Does LDW Work?

This system’s cameras, located near the rearview mirror, detects lane markings and when your vehicle’s wheels move past that lane marker, the flashing indicator and beeping alert will warn you to move back into your lane. In some cases, the steering wheel and even seat will vibrate to ensure you’re aware you’re drifting and can safely move back into your lane. This system can prevent crashes from:

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

In Honda models, this system is automatically activated when you start your vehicle. In other models, it may need to be activated by pushing a button. Also, note this system will not go off if you’re using your turn signal.

Lane Departure Warning Options

This system has a few different options when equipped in a Honda model. Not only will you be safe on the Brockton streets, but also on the highway when you customize the system to alert you the way you need. These options include customized feedback, warning types, and more such as:

  • 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
