What is the Lane Departure Warning System?

Lane Keeping Warning Light

A Lane Departure Warning System (LDW) is a sensor that warns the driver when the vehicle begins to move out of its lane (unless a turning signal is blinking) on freeways and arterial (high-traffic/urban) roads. LDW keeps the driver alerted when they accidentally begin to drift out of their lane. This system is part of the Honda Sensing® safety suite and is standard in most new models and offered in additional models.

How Does LDW Work?

When commuting in your Honda between Omaha and Bellevue, you want to ensure your safety and other drivers surrounding you, as well. LDW utilizes a camera to detect lane markings ahead of your vehicle and your position in the lane. When the camera catches you unintentionally approaching another lane, it delivers a warning, which can include: an audible warning, a haptic warning (vibration in the seat or steering wheel), the ability to disable the vehicle, self-correction, or a visual warning.

The vehicle can automatically correct, but it is not standard in all cars. In Honda vehicles, this function turns on automatically when you start the vehicle; however, this is not standard for all vehicles. This function protects the driver, passenger, and surrounding cars from:

  • Sideswiping
  • A vehicle intruding too far into an adjoining lane
  • Rollovers
  • And, many more dangerous scenarios
