Can I turn off lane keeping assist permanently?

I have recently bought a Toyota Yaris Hybrid which has a white line follower facility. On our narrow lanes locally we are constantly crossing the centre line and the white line follower is most disconcerting going on and off. I would like to switch it off permanently but seems this is not possible and have to switch off every time I start up. Is there any way it can be permanently switched off please?

As far as we are aware it is not possible to permanently disable the lane keep assist function in your car, as this is part of the mandatory safety equipment for vehicle sold in the EU and contributes to its five star Euro NCAP safety rating.

I have an Audi A3. Can the lane change option be turned off permanently? It’s far from a safety feature. When overtaking a cyclist it pulls you back into the the cyclist.

Looks great on the outside and isn't too shabby on the inside either. Hybrid engine is cheap to run and relaxing. Autonomous aids make long drives painless.
