What Is Lane Departure Warning?

Honda Lane Departure Warning


Lane Departure Warning (LDW) is an advanced Honda safety feature that can help avoid possible collisions by alerting drivers when their vehicle is drifting out of its lane. This feature is a part of the Honda Sensing® safety suite which is standard in most new Honda models and offered as an available option in others. Learn more about all that the Lane Departure Warning system can do for you on your Orange Park-area commute in this guide from Honda of the Avenues.

How Does LDW Work?

Utilizing cameras located near the rearview mirror, LDW can detect lane markings and when your vehicle’s wheels move past the lane marker, a flashing indicator and beeping alert will warn you to move back into your lane. In some cases, the steering wheel and even the seat will vibrate to get your attention so you can safely move back into your lane. The Lane Departure Warning system can prevent crashes from:

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

The LDW system is automatically activated when you start your Honda car, truck, or SUV. In some models you may need to activate LDW by pushing a button. It’s important to note that this system will not go off if you’re using your turn signal.

Lane Departure Warning Options

With LDW, you’ll have a few different options on how the system will alert you. Not only will you be safe on the Gainesville 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:

  • Visual alerts with a flashing lane marking symbol
  • Adjustable audible warning levels
  • Haptic feedback warnings like seat and wheel vibrations
  • The ability to disable the system
  • Highway’s edge recognition
  • Honda Sensing® Features

Along with Lane Departure Warning, St. Augustine car buyers will enjoy the protection of many other safety features in the Honda Sensing® system, such as:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
