The vehicular communication is an important issue to the researchers who are engaged in preventing traffic accidents and traffic jams. The earlier vehicular models had discussed only communication among vehicles through the Road Side Units (RSU). Most of the researchers used IEEE 802.11 for vehicular communication in which the vehicles are moving inside the city. But in this paper the author uses the latest VANET technology 802.11p in the Manhattan mobility model in which the nodes are moving inside the city. Without using the RSUs, each vehicle in the Manhattan mobility network is treated as a router to communicate with the neighboring vehicles.
