This is something we've been watching at PRWeek. When would a company come out to support the proposed national ban on text messaging while driving?

Ford looks to be the first one - before the handset makers even. From The New York Times:
Senator Schumer praised Ford for its support of a ban.

“Ford deserves credit for stepping up as the first car company to endorse a ban on this dangerous habit,” he said in a statement. “We are gathering a critical mass of support for this bill, which will give us the momentum we need to get it passed.”

Text-messaging bans have already been enacted in 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Who will be next?
