Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork (VANET) is a new type of Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET). VANET supports safety systems, designed to avoid road accidents. Broadcast transmission is used in VANET to alert all vehicles within a geographical area about an emergency situation. The successful dissemination of warning messages beyond the transmission range of vehicle faces various issues like broadcast storm, hidden nodes problem, feedback problem, channel load etc. In this paper, various broadcasting data dissemination protocols are surveyed separately and their fundamental characteristics are revealed. In the end a tabular comparison of all the protocols has been done.
