The roads are full of potential hazards and distractions, which means driving can be challenging at times. Fortunately, you can get some help by choosing a vehicle that’s outfitted with Honda Sensing technology. These driver-assistive and safety technologies are standard or available in most Hondas and will help you get to your destination. Get more details on some of Honda Sensing’s top features.
Collision Mitigation Braking System
You never know when a pedestrian or motorist will jump out in front of your car. Sometimes, your reflexes aren’t quick enough to avoid the obstacle, which can lead to a collision. Fortunately, the Collision Mitigation Braking System can step in to save the day. The system monitors the road in front and emits a warning if something’s in your path. If you don’t take steps to avoid the collision, it will gently apply the brakes for you.
Road Departure Mitigation System
Do you find yourself drifting outside of your lane when driving long distances? That will be a thing of the past if you get a Honda with the Road Departure Mitigation System. It transmits a warning if you drift over a detected lane without signaling. Then it can guide your car back into your lane and apply the brakes if necessary.
Lane Keeping Assist System
What if you continue to drift out of your lane? If that happens, you can turn on the Lane Keeping Assist System. The camera detects the lanes and then adjusts your steering, so your car stays in the middle. Then you can focus on getting to your destination.
Adaptive Cruise Control With Low-speed Follow
Cruise control can help you conserve gas and stick to the speed limit. Unfortunately, though, standard cruise control is a hassle. You have to apply the brakes when you’re behind slower vehicles and re-engage cruise control when the road is clear. That’s not the case if you have Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, though. The system monitors the traffic in front of you and applies the brakes if you need to slow down. You’ll maintain a following proper speed and then go back to your set speed when the road clears.

Traffic Sign Recognition
It’s hard to keep up with all the posted speed limits, so you can end up going faster than intended. That can lead to a ticket, but the Traffic Sign Recognition system is here to help. It checks for speed limit signs, and when it detects one, it displays the speed on your heads-up display or dashboard.
You can see these technologies in action at Bob Brady Honda in Decatur, Illinois. Stop by to test-drive a 2022 CR-V, Pilot, Accord, or another option with Honda Sensing. Then you can head back to the dealership to fill out the paperwork and take your new Honda home today.
