WARNING

multi-information display is indicated to advise you to keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.



Do not rely completely on the DRSS and always drive carefully:

The ability to detect a vehicle ahead is limited depending on the type of vehicle ahead, the weather conditions, and the traffic conditions. Therefore, if the accelerator and brake pedals are not operated correctly it could lead to an accident. Always verify the safety of the surrounding area and depress the brake pedal or accelerator pedal while keeping a safer distance from vehicles ahead or on-coming vehicles.
