Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANETs) provide roadside communication for improving the ease of driving user information exchange. It interconnects hierarchical infrastructure units and other vehicles for real-time traffic and vehicle management applications. The growth of vehicle and information density requires concord information exchange for application responses. In this article, Vehicle-Consensus Routing Management Scheme (VCRMS) is proposed for achieving fair roadside assistance for driving users. The proposed scheme exploits the surrounding vehicle information for infrastructure selection and traffic management. The infrastructure and vehicle information are analyzed for their similarity using deep learning for extracting monotonous decisions. The current and previous decisions are used for succeeding in information selection and traffic information retrieval. This prevents unnecessary data from being congesting the traffic and vehicle management application during driver assistance. The performance shows that the proposed scheme achieves 10.7% high application response, 15.9% less information delay, and 10.7% less traffic for different vehicle velocities.
