Driver Alert System*
The Driver Alert System is intended to assist drivers whose driving ability is deteriorating or who are inadvertently leaving the lane they are driving on.
The Driver Alert System consists of different functions which can either be switched on at the same time or individually:
A switched-on function is set in standby mode and is not activated automatically until speed exceeds 65 km/h (40 mph).
The function is deactivated again when speed decreases to below 60 km/h (37 mph).
The functions use a camera which is dependent on the lane having side markings painted on each side.
Driver Alert System does not work in all situations but is designed merely as a supplementary aid.
The driver always bears ultimate responsibility for ensuring that the vehicle is driven safely.
