That's really not true. Before car companies sell cars, they
pass (lots of) safety certification tests. Before owners drive
cars legally, they pass a safety and emissions test. Sure, the
highway folks clean up after the occasional tire blowout, but
there's been a lot of work put in to make sure that the engines
aren't going to drop out on a regular basis.
If the Internet was a highway, it would be covered in burned-out engines.
