Lane Departure Warning (LDW)*  
1Lane Departure Warning (LDW)*  
Alerts you when the system determines a possibility of your vehicle unintentionally  
crossing over detected lane markings.  
Important Safety Reminder  
Like all assistance systems, LDW has limitations.  
Over-reliance on LDW may result in a collision. It is  
always your responsibility to keep the vehicle within  
your driving lane.  
How the System Works  
If your vehicle is getting too close to detected  
left or right side lane markings without a turn  
signal activated, LDW will give audible and  
visual alerts.  
LDW only alerts you when lane drift is detected  
without a turn signal in use. LDW may not detect all  
lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary  
based on weather, speed and lane marker condition.  
It is always your responsibility to safely operate the  
vehicle and avoid collisions.  
The beeper sounds and the Lane Departure  
message appears on the multi-information  
display, letting you know that you need to  
take appropriate action.  
You can read about handling information for the  
camera equipped with this system.
