This simply isn't true.  You can purchase a vehicle without any of those
devices.  Sure, it restricts you to older vehicles, but, they are still
available.  Additionally, if you so choose, you can build your own vehicle
without those devices.  There are exemptions in most of the laws for
vehicles manufactured without them.
