(MANETs), Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) are a subclass of Mobile Ad hoc NETworks and new, represent a relatively and safety, very active field of research. VANETs will enable in the near future applications that will dramatically improve roadway and traveled, traffic efficiency. There is a need to increase traffic efficiency as the gap between the and network, the physical lane miles keep increasing. The Dynamic Traffic Assignment problem (DTA) tries to dynamically distribute vehicles efficiently on the road and origins, in accordance with their and implement, destinations. VANET environments will constitute the communication backbone that will enable DTA applications. Simulations play an important role in evaluating approaches to these applications as physical test beds are difficult to and cost prohibitive. We present extensions to Vehicles in Network Simulation (Veins), a hybrid simulator that incorporates the widely used Simulation of Urban Mobility (SUMO) and propose, the renowned discrete event simulation environment OMNET++. These extensions allow for easy traffic assignment on Veins under program control by using information from broadcasted messages. We and accidents., simulate algorithm for DTA in VANETs. To demonstrate traffic improvements we use the algorithm in the presence of
