IIHS: Most Honda Drivers Turn Off Lane Departure Warning
Do you turn off your lane departure warning system? Do you leave your forward collision warning system on?
A recent IIHS study found that, “all but one of 184 models equipped with the two features had forward collision warning turned on, while only a third of vehicles had lane departure warning activated.”
For the new study, researchers observed 2013-15 Honda Accords, 2014-15 Odysseys and 2015 CR-Vs at dealerships in Germantown, Md., and Alexandria, Va.
Their findings also point to numerous studies that have found that drivers find lane departure warnings “annoying.”
What do you think? Is risking a crash worth it to not be annoyed by the alert?
