Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication in Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) is one of the key ingredients in the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) where vehicles receive relevant traffic information using wireless communications from their peers. Forwarding traffic information to drivers can assist with the tasks of avoiding traffic accidents and related congestion. In this paper, we investigate the effect of association time (a.k.a. connection setup time), relative speed of vehicles, transmission range and message/data size in short range based V2V communications. The analysis is illustrated with the numerical results obtained from simulations.
