How Does LDW Work in Your Honda Model?

You may know that the Lane Departure Warning system gives you support on roads around Moundsville, but how does LDW work? With cameras located near the rearview mirror, this system detects lane markings, and if your vehicle moves past the markings, a flashing indicator and beeping alert will notify you to move back into your lane. To also warn you, it can also vibrate the steering wheel or seat to make sure you’re aware you’re drifting into another lane. LDW is meant to alert you and prevent crashes from: 

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

Some vehicles require the system to be activated by pushing a button, but the system in Honda models is automatically activated once the vehicle is started. Keep in mind that the system won’t alert you when you’re using your turn signal. 

Customizing Lane Departure Warning Settings

Now that you know what is Lane Departure Warning, what are the ways you can customize it to your driving style? When you’re driving on Steubenville streets with a Honda model equipped with LDW, you can personalize the feedback and warning types with options like: 

  • 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
