What is Lincoln Speed Sign Recognition*?

Speed Sign Recognition is a feature of Lincoln's Adaptive Cruise Control that helps you keep your speed at the posted limit. While driving with cruise control activated, it can sometimes be easy to miss a speed limit sign, but Speed Sign Recognition can help maintain your vehicle at a pre-set speed.

How it Works

Once your vehicle speed is set, if the system identifies a speed limit sign below the set speed, it automatically adjusts the vehicle speed accordingly. Your vehicle will resume to the pre-set speed once a new sign is detected.

The system can be set to maintain a speed above or below the scanned signs or disabled altogether. For example, if the Speed Sign Recognition system detects a 50 miles per hour (mph) speed limit, the cruise set speed is updated to 50 mph, unless the parameters are set above or below the detected speed limit.
