The Monroe Drive Safe website has been developed by Monroe as a driving safety information resource to help keep Australian roads a safe place to drive. We hope that you will find the website informative and useful.
Monroe’s Commitment to Safe Driving
Monroe’s vision is to pioneer global ideas for cleaner, quieter and safer transportation. Starting in 1919, Monroe led a revolution in driving with the development of the shock absorber, the first original equipment installed in passenger vehicles. Since then, Monroe’s shock absorber developments have enhanced the road safety of millions of road users worldwide.
Shock absorbers help keep your vehicle’s wheels on the road, and as there’s a Monroe shock absorber suitable for virtually any road vehicle, Australian motorists can enjoy their journey in safety and control. In fact, more Australian cars have Monroe shock absorbers on their vehicle than any other brand.
