How Does LDW Work?

Using cameras near located near the rearview mirror of your Honda, this system detects lane markings and can tell your vehicle’s wheels move past that lane marker. If that happens, a flashing indicator and beeping alert will warn you to move back into your lane. In certain situations, the seat and steering wheel will also vibrate to ensure you’re aware you’re drifting and can safely move back into your lane. This system can help prevent crashes from:

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

This system is automatically activated when you start your Honda model. In other makes and 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

The Lane Departure System features warning options that let you customize the system to alert you the way you need so you remain safe on the Cicero streets and highways. 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
