The total number of vehicles in the world has experienced a remarkable growth, increasing traffic density which results in more and more accidents. Therefore the manufactures, researchers and government is shifting focus towards improving the on road safety rather than improving the quality of the roads. The good development in the wireless technologies emerged various new type of networks, such as Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET), which provides communication between vehicles themselves and between vehicles and road side units. Various new concepts such as smart cities and living labs [1] are introduced in the recent years where VANETs plays an important role. A survey of various Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) and various routing protocols with respect to our proposed scheme is described in this paper. It also introduces a new scheme consist of a smart city framework that transmit information about traffic conditions that will help the driver to take appropriate decisions. It consists of a warning message module composed of Intelligent Traffic Lights (ITLs) which provides information to the driver about current traffic conditions.
