Travelling plays an essential role in our daily lives. Most of the accidents will happen in unknown places where we use to visit. VANET improves the safety of our intelligence transportation system by providing sensible and proficient data dissemination about actions like accidents, traffic jams and road environment along driver’s information. To reduce the accidents in VANET, they use On board Units and RSU for communication of vehicular networks. While V2I selection of RSU is plays an important role. Existing methods will place the RSU in Dense areas of vehicles or at the Traffic signal junctions. We proposed a new way of placing and selecting RSUs in District and urban connecting highway roads.
