Changes to Ratings - Smoking Kills

The MPAA added a new criteria that it will look for when rating a movie. They will now look at the amount of smoking in the movie as an indicator to the rating they give it. More information here.

My question/request is this: To all the people responsible for movie and TV ratings, why can’t you enforce the use of seatbelts in movies and television? I know that the smoking thing is in an attempt to curb smoking in youngsters, but what good is a bad guy without an evil cigarette or cigar? Now if only everyone in TV and movies wore their seatbelts, you could probably actually save lives.

Everyone, I know this is a lame post, but please wear your seatbelts.
