Traffic congestion is an urban mobility problem, which generates stress to drivers and economic losses. In 2012, greenhouse gas emissions from transportation accounted for about 28% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Intelligent transportation systems can assist in the identification and reduction of vehicular traffic congestion. In this context, this work proposes an intelligent traffic information system based on inter-vehicle communication to avoid vehicle traffic congestion. The main goal of the proposed solution is to decrease CO2 emissions, the average trip time and fuel consumption by avoiding congested roads. Simulation results show that our proposed solution can reduce the average trip time, and the overall CO2 emission and fuel consumption. In particular, the trip time was decreased approximately 86%, the fuel consumption 40% and the CO2 emission 55%. This shows the potential of the proposed solution.
