In this paper we considered a WiMAX-based system architecture for car to car (C2C) communications. The aim is to design an intelligent wireless traffic service platform which allows car to car and car to transceiver stations communications. Conventional WiMAX system was analysed as a basic platform due to its support for robust security and for mobility. However, we found some problems with the system for supporting C2C communications. As a solution, an optimized C2C communication mechanism with neighbor detection and optimum route decision module was proposed. This module uses available information in the neighborhood and adds no extra cost of traffic.
