Ok, I’m going to jump right into this. My husband and I rented a car to make our family vacation trip from Texas to Florida. We were given a newer Toyota Camry, as we requested a car of similar size to our car, which happens to be a 2001 Toyota Camry. My mind was just blown by this car. My husband veered off the road just slightly, and an alarm started going off in the car. I am in my 30s with 2 teenagers, so I thought nothing could surprise me. I was wrong. As soon as the alarm went off, I jumped in my seat in excitement and asked if it was what I thought it was. We have now been playing with this system to see how it works. I had to pick my jaw up off of my lap because HOW DOES IT KNOW??!!?? When there is a slight bend in he road, we don’t use a blinker, but we turn the wheel ever so slightly, and it doesn’t go off. However, if we’re in a straight lane and we turn the wheel so the car moves into the next lane a little or into the shoulder, we get the alarm. It doesn’t come on when we use the blinker, and I understand how that would work, but I can’t figure this out, and I don’t understand any materials I’ve found on it, so someone please, ELI5!
