System operation

The system visually monitors the left and right side lane markers of the traveling lane. If there is a risk of the vehicle leaving the traveling lane unintended, the system flashes an indicator and sounds a warning chime.

* System function only when lane markings are clearly visible on the road.
** On some models, the steering wheel vibrates (haptic sensation) and a visual alert is provided.
