In this paper, it has been proposed an innovative approach to deal with the problem of traffic congestion using the characteristics of Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANET). The system is developed and tested using AODV protocol of ad hoc mobile network to deal with the problem of vehicle traffic congestion in vehicular networks. The performance is measured in terms of no. of packets broadcasted, percentage of packets delivered, and percentage of traffic diverted and overhead to manage the problem of data traffic congestion in computer networks. Using simulations the applicability of the algorithm in the domain of vehicle traffic congestion in a VANET is demonstrated.
