How Does LDW Work?

This system detects lane markings using cameras located near the rearview mirror. If your vehicle’s wheels move past that lane marker, a visual and audio alert will warn you to move back into your lane. On some models, the seats and steering wheels will also vibrate when you drift. This system can help protect drivers from:

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

With Honda vehicles, this feature activates automatically when you start your vehicle. For other automakers, similar features have to be activated by the driver. This gives Honda Lane Departure Warning an edge for ease of use. Also, you won’t have to worry about this feature going off when you’re turning or changing lanes when your turn signal is on, as the Honda Lane Departure Warning will recognize your lane changes as intentional.
