That's a bugger. I get the near misses and you get a prime example of a bonehead move

Yep. If I have a passenger, I get them to answer it. If I'm solo and not expecting a call, I ignore it.
However, hypocrite here
, on the odd occasion I am expecting an important call and if the traffic is light I do sometimes answer it, but I always either tell them quickly that I'm driving and I'll call them back or to wait until I can pull over.
Depending on who it is, if all else fails, the "I'm driving and there's a cop behind me - gotta go" always guarantees a quick sub 5 sec call
