Honda Lane Departure Warning System (LDW)

Honda - Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) is a Honda safety feature designed to help Honda Owners avoid possible collisions caused by drifting out of their lane. This safety alert system available with Honda Sensing package, and found within the Honda lineup at Number 7 Honda, uses a camera to detect road lines. The camera is mounted to the windshield just below the rearview mirror and only activates if the vehicle is going at a speed of 65km/h and above. If your vehicle does not have the turn indicator signal on and begins to drift out of its lane, the LDW will flash an icon on the dashboard, and a beep will sound. LDW does not correct steering on its own, it purely warns the driver to adjust the vehicle into its lane. These warnings can be turned off using the LDW button to the left of the steering wheel. The best way to fully experience this safety feature is to test drive a Honda model that comes equipped with it. Visit Number 7 Honda to take a drive in your favourite Honda model.
