What Is Lane Departure Warning?

Honda LaneWatch camera

Lane Departure Warning is one component of the Honda Sensing® safety suite that comes standard in most new Honda models and is available in others. This feature alerts drivers when their car is drifting out of its lane, helping to avoid possible collisions. Learn all about Lane Departure Warning and how it can enhance your safety on Whittier-area roads in this guide from Honda World Downey.

How Does Lane Departure Warning Work?

Using cameras mounted near the rearview mirror, the Lane Departure Warning system detects lane markings and will alert you when your vehicle starts to leave the lane if you haven’t activated the turn signal. A flashing indicator and a beeping alert, or haptic feedback in the steering wheel or your seat, serve to warn you of the situation. The system can help prevent collisions from:

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

In Honda models, Lane Departure Warning automatically activates when you start your vehicle.

Lane Departure Warning Options

There are a few different warning options with the Honda Lane Departure Warning system. This allows you to customize the alerts to suit your driving needs on the roads in and around Los Angeles. Available options include:

  • Visual alerts with a flashing lane marking symbol
  • Adjustable audible warning levels
  • Haptic feedback warnings like seat and steering wheel vibrations
  • Highway’s edge recognition
  • Ability to disable the system
