Lane Departure Warning

What Is Lane Departure Warning? Lane Departure Warning is a Honda safety feature designed to help drivers avoid potential collisions due to drifting out of their lane. As part of the Honda Sensing™ safety suite, Lane Departure Warning comes standard on most new Honda models and is available on the rest. Check out this feature and how it can improve your nights out in Portsmouth at Dover Honda!

How Does Lane Departure Warning Work?

The system’s rearview mirror cameras can detect lane markings and, when your Honda model’s wheels move past the lane marker, alert drivers with a flashing indicator and beeping alert. Additionally, Lane Departure Warning can help prevent crashes from:

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

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.

  • Haptic feedback warnings like seat and wheel vibrations
  • Visual alerts with a flashing lane marking symbol

  • The ability to disable the system
