The Honda Sensing® suite plays host to many different advanced safety features and driver-assist technologies, including the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). Not only do these groundbreaking Honda Sensing features keep South Dakota roadways safer, but they also come standard equipped on nearly every new Honda vehicle. With all this being said, the staff at Vern Eide Honda in Sioux Falls would like to introduce you to the latest addition to the Honda Sensing suite: Traffic Sign Recognition or TSR.

Plagued by expensive traffic tickets on I-90, I-29, or I-229? How about some of South Dakota’s busiest streets and highways? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a reminder? TSR can help!

Although the technology behind this driver-assist technology is very sophisticated, using it is simple.
Just like any driver-assist technology, Honda’s Traffic Sign Recognition has a few limitations as they relate to your vehicle. TSR can be affected by the following conditions:
As one of Honda’s newest driver-assist technologies, Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) is only featured on a select number of vehicles at the moment. Scroll down to find out which Honda models come with TSR.
