Stream traffic conditions on the NJ Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, Atlantic City Expressway, Interstate Highways and local roads.
The Hands-Free, Eyes-Free "SafeTripNJ" Smartphone App
Listen to your phone play travel advisories near you, in your direction of travel. As you travel, it will automatically keep you updated. You don't need to register, you don't need to sign up anywhere for anything. Launch the hands-free app before you put your car in drive. The app uses the phone's internal GPS to locate your position and direction of travel. SafeTripNJ will sense when you are approaching a reported roadway conditions weather on the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Interstate or New Jersey highway. It will start talking with streaming audio, telling you about active advisories that are ahead.
How it Works
Launch the hands-free SafeTripNJ application before you put your car in drive. You will hear active advisories that are near you. Now put down the phone and focus on driving. There’s nothing on your phone that you need to touch or read. Just listen for travel alerts.
SafeTripNJ will remain on while you drive, automatically activating when you approach an area impacted by a advisory. The app will broadcast any travel alerts for reported conditions within a set mile-range (that you can set for yourself) of your current location.
Conditions will be broadcast once, then the broadcast stream will go quiet until:
there is an update to an advisory near you; or
you have come within range of another advisory; or
a set time period has elapsed (that you choose) and you want to re-hear all advisories that are still in range.
If you get a call, or make a call while a travel alert is playing, the alert will pause, and will resume playing when the call has ended.
User Modifications Features/Experience
You can modify several options. These configurations are saved on your phone.
the advisory replay interval
the All Points advisory replay interval
the range (in miles) for hearing advisories
The application gives you audio player controls for Play, Pause, Stop, Skip, and Replay Current.
At any time you can turn off your phone’s GPS. If you do, the app will try to estimate what advisories to broadcast. You can also turn off the GPS from within the app, and then advisories will stop playing.
You do not need to register with the New Jersey Turnpike or NJ511, or subscribe for alerts to use this app. We don’t get or record any uniquely or personally identifying information about you or your phone.
The application is based upon Information Logistics' patent-pending "Open Microphone Platform" which is a queue-driven, voice-streaming technology used in combination with your phone's built-in GPS. The data for the system is the NJ511 travel advisory data.
