Traffic Jam Assist

Driving

Keep your vehicle near the center of the lane 
while driving.

u

The LKAS indicator changes from white 
to green, and white lines change to 
green once the system starts operating 
after detecting the left and right lane 
markings.

How Traffic Jam Assist Works

1

How Traffic Jam Assist Works

If your vehicle veers too far to the right or the left of 
the white (or yellow) traffic lane lines while Traffic 
Jam Assist is active, deactivate Traffic Jam Assist and 
have your vehicle inspected by an authorized Honda 
dealer.

In some cases the system cannot properly detect the 
traffic lane lines and, as a result, will not provide 
steering assistance.

Traffic Jam Assist: Conditions and 
Limitations

 P. 533

If the driver takes their hands off the steering wheel 
or does not adequately maintain control of steering, 
the warning below will appear.

If the driver does not grip the steering wheel after the 
warning above has repeatedly appeared, a warning 
buzzer will sound and Traffic Jam Assist will be 
canceled.

Driving

Press the LKAS button to cancel Traffic Jam Assist.

Traffic Jam Assist may be automatically suspended when:

The system is automatically temporarily canceled under the following circumstances.

The system fails to detect lane lines.

The steering wheel is turned sharply.

You fail to steer the vehicle.

You are driving through a sharp curve.

The brake pedal is depressed.

Once these conditions no longer exist, Traffic Jam Assist automatically resumes.

Traffic Jam Assist may be automatically canceled when:

The traffic lane lines will disappear from the screen, the beeper may sound, and 
Traffic Jam Assist will be canceled under the following circumstances:

The temperature of the camera is too high.

The camera behind the rearview mirror, or the area around the camera, including 
the windshield, is dirty.

Canceling Traffic Jam Assist

1

Traffic Jam Assist may be automatically suspended when:

You are traveling over 45mph (72km/h).

u

When the speed of the vehicle reaches 45mph 

(72km/h), Traffic Jam Assist is deactivated and LKAS 
is activated instead. Once the speed of the vehicle 
drops to under 42mph (68km/h), Traffic Jam Assist 
is reactivated.

Driving

The system may not detect lane markings and therefore may not keep the vehicle in 
the middle of the lane under certain conditions, including the following:

Environmental conditions

There is little contrast between lane lines and the roadway surface.

Driving in bad weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.).

Driving on a snowy or wet roadway.

Driving into low sunlight (e.g., at dawn or dusk).

Shadows of adjacent objects (trees, buildings, guard rails, vehicles, etc.) are 
parallel to white (or yellow) lines.

Sudden changes between light and dark, such as the entrance or exit of a tunnel 
or the shadows of trees, buildings, etc.

Driving at night or in a dark place such as a tunnel (due to low-light conditions, 
lane lines or the road surface may not be illuminated).

When the lane lines or road surface are not visible, such as when the distance to 
the vehicle in front of you is extremely short or when at an intersection.

Strong light is reflected onto the roadway.

Driving

Road Departure Mitigation System

Alerts and helps assist you when the system detects a possibility of your vehicle 
crossing over detected lane markings, or approaching the outer edge of the 
pavement (into grass or gravel border) or a detected oncoming vehicle.

The front camera behind the rearview mirror 
monitors left and right lane markings in white 
or yellow, the outer edge of the pavement 
(bordered by grass or gravel) or a detected 
oncoming vehicles.
If your vehicle approaches any detected lane 
markings, the outer edge of the pavement 
(bordered by grass or gravel) or a detected 
oncoming vehicles when the turn signals have 
not been engaged, the system activates.

u

If the system cannot detect lane markings 
(in white or yellow), no assistance will be 
provided to avoid approaching oncoming 
vehicles. In addition to a visual alert, the 
system assists with steering and alerts you 
with rapid steering wheel vibrations to 
help you remain within the detected lane.

Road Departure Mitigation System

Important Safety Reminder

Like all assistance systems, the Road Departure 
Mitigation system has limitations.
Over-reliance on the Road Departure Mitigation 
system may result in a collision. It is always your 
responsibility to keep the vehicle within your driving 
lane.

The Road Departure Mitigation system alerts you 
when the system detects that you are approaching 
the outer edge of the pavement (into grass or gravel 
border), an oncoming vehicle, or drifting into another 
lane without using a turn signal.
The Road Departure Mitigation system may not detect 
all lane markings or every instance of lane drift.
The Road Departure Mitigation system may not 
detect that you are approaching the outer edge of 
the pavement (bordered by grass or gravel) or an 
oncoming vehicle.
The Road Departure Mitigation system may not be 
able to assist you depending on weather, speed or 
road conditions.

The Road Departure Mitigation system is not activated 
for about 15 seconds after the engine starts.

You can read about handling information for the 
camera equipped with this system.

If the system operates several times without detecting driver response, the system 
beeps to alert you.

Traffic Sign Recognition System

Continued

Driving

Traffic Sign Recognition System

Reminds you of road sign information, such as the current speed limit your vehicle 
has just passed through, showing it on the gauge.

When the camera located behind the rearview mirror captures traffic signs while 
driving, the system displays the ones that are recognized as designated for your 
vehicle. The sign icon will be displayed until the vehicle reaches a predetermined 
time and distance.
If the system does not detect any traffic signs while you are driving, the sign icon will 
not be displayed.

The sign icon also may switch to another one, or disappear when:

The end of speed limit or other designated limit is detected.

You make a turn with a turn signal at an intersection.

How the System Works

1

Traffic Sign Recognition System

Not all signs may be displayed, but any signs posted 
on roadsides should not be ignored. The system does 
not work on the designated traffic signs of all the 
countries you travel, nor in all situations.
Do not rely too much on the system. Always drive at 
speeds appropriate for the road conditions.

Never apply a film or attach any objects to the 
windshield that could obstruct the camera’s field of 
vision and cause the system to operate abnormally.
Scratches, nicks, and other damage to the windshield 
within the camera’s field of vision can cause the 
system to operate abnormally. If this occurs, we 
recommend that you replace the windshield with a 
genuine Honda replacement windshield. Making even 
minor repairs within the camera’s field of vision or 
installing an aftermarket replacement windshield may 
also cause the system to operate abnormally. After 
replacing the windshield, have a dealer recalibrate the 
camera. Proper calibration of the camera is necessary 
for the system to operate properly.

The traffic sign recognition system is not activated for 
about 15 seconds after the engine starts.

You can read about handling information for the 
camera equipped with this system.

To help reduce the likelihood that high interior 
temperatures will cause the camera’s sensing system 
to shut off, when parking, find a shady area or face 
the front of the vehicle away from the sun. If you use 
a reflective sun shade, do not allow it to cover the 
camera housing.

The system’s ability to accurately notify the driver of 
the speed limit is dependent on certain conditions 
such as the units displayed on the traffic sign as well 
as the speed and direction of travel of the vehicle. In 
some cases, the system may display false warnings or 
other inaccurate information.
