The emergence of vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) has provided the vital answer to vehicular communications. VANET can be either infrastructure based or simply lacking any. In our paper, we have dealt with an exemplary network that requires the presence of no such agent. VANET acts in a way applying any of the three methods: it either exchanges information between vehicle to vehicle, vehicles to roadside units and lastly the roadside units themselves exchange data through the communication channel. Previously, its operation was dependent on only WiMAX and WiFi to a large extent, but new breakthroughs have found VANET being thoroughly reliant on WAVE. We found that VANET has many challenges both on a global scale and for Bangladesh too. We identified the unique challenges posed by the lack of infrastructure, poverty and other issues present in a third world country. We have tried to address and provide a basic overview about all these restrictions in this paper and finally, we have also talked about a demonstration software we created to show the necessity and application of vehicular network in the reason - helping people in avoiding roads with traffic jams.
