Car with Lane Departure Warning

If you’re a hopeful new Honda owner or a current Tipp City Honda driver, you are certainly aware of the outstanding driver assistance features included in the Honda Sensing® safety suite, standard on most new Honda models and available on many others. As part of the Honda Sensing® suite, have you been wondering “what is Lane Departure Warning,” and thus, “how does LDW work?” If so, this guide will answer your questions and clue you in on this innovative technology!

How Does LDW Work?

How does LDW work? As a function working in tandem with your other Honda Sensing™ technologies, Lane Departure Warning alerts you when you are drifting out of your lane. This feature utilizes your rearview mirror-mounted camera to detect lane markings on Dayton roads and beyond. When your vehicle’s wheels move too close to or across those lane markings, the Lane Departure Warning system alerts you with an audio and visual cue to move back into your lane. This driver assistance feature helps prevent:

  • Close proximity to cars in parallel lanes
  • Sideswiping
  • Rollovers
  • And more!
