A Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network or VANET is a class of a Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET). Vehicular Ad-hoc networks help in the implementation of various driving safety applications. Communication (Vehicle to Vehicle) in vehicles is wireless transmission of data that provides services for important safety improvements. 

 The adoption of video transmission in VANETs communication has become essential due to the comprehensiveness and applicability of video data for on-road advertisement and infotainment. Video communication in VANETs helps in capturing and monitoring the environment, surveillance, traffic accidents and disaster based smart city applications. 

In this paper, we apply real time video streaming in VANETs in order to reduce the traffic congestion due to accidents. We apply various techniques for video streaming between vehicles and analyze these techniques for their performances. This paper describes the implementation of accident detection using Mobile net object detection model and video streaming using socket programming technique.
