What Is Lane Departure Warning?

behind the wheel POV


So, what is Lane Departure Warning? Lane Departure Warning is an advanced safety feature offered by Honda to help motorists avoid collisions caused by unintended drifting from lane to lane. Built into the Honda Sensing® safety suite, drivers can expect this feature standard in most new Honda models, and it is available as an upgrade in others. Still asking, “How does LDW work?” Read on below with the automotive experts at Straub Honda so you can understand how your Honda can help keep you safe on every Wheeling commute!

How Does LDW Work?

Now that you know that Lane Departure Warning has your back on the Moundsville streets, you probably want to know more about it. The system is built with a network of cameras located near the rearview mirror. But how does LDW work? The cameras detect the lane markings on the road as you smoothly glide past them and actively monitor your position within them.

If the cameras detect that you are drifting without cause, a flashing indicator and beeping alert will notify you. In some models, you can even set the steering wheel and seat to vibrate to bring your attention back to the road as quickly as possible. In a model with this feature, you can avoid crashes from:

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

Lane Departure Warning Options

This advanced system will not only work to keep you safe on the Steubenville streets, but it can also be customized to suit your preferences. You can set your preferred feedback, warning system alerts, and more to keep you in line with the journey ahead. Options include:

  • 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
