Nowadays, both the modern and developing countries are planning to deploy Internet of Vehicles for smart transportation systems to face the traffic congestion problems. Shifting from current road conditions to smart ones is a real challenge where all the vehicles and road infrastructure are not equipped with wireless network interfaces. The urban environment is more congested than highway scenarios and has more issues of delay and travel time. Various types of route suggestion protocols have been proposed where most of them consider smart vehicles which are equipped with smart and intelligent communication devices. The most of existing schemes have not considered non-equipped vehicles which have a major cause of traffic congestion. This paper presents a route suggestion protocol to suggest an optimal congestion aware route in the network. Equipped and non-equipped vehicles are taking into account for congestion index formulation along with driving distraction factors. Simulation results indicated the greater performance of proposed protocol and reduce the travel time effectively when works with IoV as compared to traditional route suggestion protocols.
