New app warns NJ drivers about traffic

WOODBRIDGE - New Jersey Turnpike Authority officials have announced a new app that they hope will improve safety on the state's major toll roads.

SafeTripNJ ties alerts from the 511nj.org traffic information center in audio form for drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway. The app is available for iPhones and Androids.

Drivers can select the frequency of alerts and the radius. Officials say the hands-free application should not distract motorists like text alerts.

Below are QR codes provided by the NJ Turnpike Authority to download the app:
