Honda Sensing

Lane Departure Warning is a Honda safety feature that is designed to help drivers avoid possible collisions caused by drifting out of their lane. Part of the Honda Sensing™ safety suite, Whether you drive a Honda Civic or a Honda CR-V, Honda Lane Departure Warning can make your South Plainfield drive safer than ever. Stop by VIP Honda to learn more!

How Does Lane Departure Warning Work?

Using your Honda vehicle cameras which are located in the rearview mirror, Lane Departure Warning detects lane markings so when your vehicle’s wheels move beyond the lane marker, your vehicle will alert you via a flashing indicator and beeping sound. This will help prevent collisions due to:

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

In Honda models, this system is automatically activated when you start your vehicle. In other 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

In addition to offering Union drivers peace of mind, Lane Departure Warning allows you to customize the system to your individual preferences. 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
