Do you have Bluetooth in your car? If so you can set the car as a trusted Bluetooth device and keep the phone unlocked while you are in the car. Settings/security & screen lock/ trusted devices.

Also you can set Touchless controls to place calls while the phone is locked - so at least you can place calls.
