With safety in mind, Pennsylvania Turnpike officials have launched a new smartphone app.

The turnpike released "TRIP Talk" Friday, an application for iPhone and Android users.

It sends audio alerts to travelers when there's a crash, bad weather, or some other problem.

The turnpike says TRIP Talk is not only convenient but safe since it's a hands-free application.
