Moliner's Answer

A. Answer it right away

It’s legal to talk on the phone while driving, so go ahead and answer it. You certainly don’t want to miss out on any important gossip. Driving can be boring, even in town, so a phone call provides some entertainment. In fact, now you don’t have to be in a hurry to be anywhere and can go any speed below the speed limit that you want to. Even talking to a telemarketer can relieve the boredom of driving in busy city streets.

Conventional Answer :

D. See who it is and then park if you need to call back immediately.
