Also known as: Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Assist
Crashes resulting from lane departures can be among the deadliest collisions. In 2015, nearly 13,000 people died in crashes where a passenger vehicle left the lane unintentionally.
When the vehicle begins to drift out of the lane, the lane departure warning will alert the driver. If the driver does not change course after the lane departure warning, the lane keeping assist system steers the vehicle back to the center of the lane.
