Safety Triangle

Three sides of the story

Stopping, steering and stability form the three sides of what Monroe call ‘the safety triangle’.

These three things are essential to your safety on and off the road. If any part of the safety triangle stops working properly, you will be putting yourself – and others – at real risk.

At 50km/h, just one worn shock absorber can increase your stopping distance by up to 2 metres!

Worn shock absorbers can cause your tyres to lose contact with the road, dramatically affecting steering.



monroe safety triangle stability


Worn shock absorbers cause excessive sway around corners, making the car a lot less stable.
