Recently, Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork (VANET) can offer various services and benefits to VANET users and thus deserves deployment effort. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are aimed at addressing critical issues like passenger safety and traffic congestion, by integrating information and communication technologies into transportation infrastructure and vehicles. They are built on top of self organizing networks, known as a Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANET), Vehicular communication systems facilitate communication devices for exchange of information among vehicles and between vehicles and roadside equipment. Working in tandem with the fielded Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) infrastructure, VANET is expected to enhance the awareness of the traveling public by aggregating, propagating and disseminating up-to -the minute information about existing or impending traffic-related events.
