A Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network is a kind of ad-hoc network, and is a self-configuring network of vehicular routers connected by wireless links. VANET presents new and promising field of research, development and standardization. Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network is a wireless network without infrastructure. Reliable broadcasting in vehicular ad-hoc networks is one of the keys to success for services and applications on intelligent transportation system. Broadcasting in VANET is very different from routing in Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) due to several reasons such as network topology, mobility patterns, demographics, traffic patterns at different time of the day, etc.
