Citroen C3 2016-2021 Owners Manual / Driving / Lane Departure Warning System

Refer to the General recommendations on the use of driving and manoeuvring aids.

This system, using a camera which recognises solid or broken lines, detects the involuntary crossing of longitudinal traffic lane markings on the ground.

If the driver's attention drops and the speed is higher than 37 mph (60 km/h), the system triggers a warning if there is an unexpected change of direction.

This system is particularly useful on motorways and main roads.
