Cars can overturn, especially in icy conditions, and be hard to roll back into an upright position, but not if they're equipped with one of my new Car Leg Up devices.
Car Leg Up is a type of leg attached to the side of the car that can upright it again if it lands on its roof.
In the event of your
car overturning, you simply press the Leg Up switch. This releases compressed air into the piston that causes the mechanical leg attached to the side of the car to fold outwards, levering against the ground and gently flipping the car into an upright position.
The leg itself comes in a variety of outward style casings that cover and weather protect the piston, bearings, and wiring. You can choose as your casing anything ranging from The Grasshopper, The Robo-Leg to The Ballet Dancer.
safety warning - In its "explosive escape mode" Car Leg Up can cause a car to make several somersaults.

against the rules, but I was thrown out of pilot training for
other reasons, first and foremost due to my excedingly slow
reaction time for decisions needing an immediate response.)
