Albany--  The state has a new system to make your travels on Georgia highways safe and hassle-free.

To get the latest traffic and travel 411, you can now dial 511. The system launched Wednesday and gives motorists the latest traffic conditions, road or lane closures and weather information.

Callers can also report accidents and request HERO assistance when stranded.

"What we're saying to travelers is 511 is the traveling information that can help you determine most everything that has to do with your mobility," said Governor Sonny Perdue.

Estimated travel times are also available for major roads within the metro-Atlanta area. The system is available 24 hours a day and can be accessed from home or mobile phones.
