The dissemination of up to date information (e.g. about traffic jams, closed roads, etc), that can be presented to drivers, is an important issue. With the increase of cars being equipped with Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) technologies, it is an obvious step to utilize the resulting communication possibilities for this purpose. Until now presented approaches mostly rely on installed Road Side Units (RSUs) installed at strategic position and a data management via a global backbone network. A wide distribution of such RSUs is very costly including the maintenance costs. Other publications already showed, that parked cars can be used in VANETs to relay messages, etc. Using parked vehicles to setup networks that are capable of replicating the functionality of RSUs, is a promising way to introduce a wide availability of relevant information. Using a protocol from the Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) domain enables us to create such networks in an efficient and stable way. Adaptions to the Virtual cord protocol (VCP) open up for the usage in the VANET domain. With Inter-domain routing protocol (IDRP) the gap to the driving cars is bridged. Extensive simulation studies were performed to evaluate the performance of the protocols. The results show that the protocols can cope with the arising challenges, and enable data storage and retrieval without the need for additional hardware.
