Why do I sometimes get “Watch the road” warnings even though I am watching the road?

This warning pops up when the driver-facing camera is having difficulty detecting your eyes. This can happen if:

  • You look away for too long.
  • You have your seat and/or steering wheel set in a combination where the camera cannot see you.
  • Bright sunlight causes you to squint your eyes.

For squinting, try using the sun visor, and/or closing the moonroof shade or wearing sunglasses. Lincoln BlueCruise works with most, but not all, sunglasses, and it can also recognize your face when wearing face coverings such as masks or religious clothing. However, wearing both sunglasses and facial coverings may obscure too much of your face and make it difficult for the cameras to work properly.‡‡

BlueCruise will provide multiple reminders to watch the road, including visual prompts on the speedometer cluster and an audible chime. Eventually, if the driver fails to respond, the vehicle will begin to slow down to approximately 5mph.

Remember that this is a driver-assistance feature. You will need to watch the road and be ready to take control at all times.
