This study seeks to conduct analytical investigation into Congestion Control models to determine the effects of parameters inherent in mitigating traffic flow density in a congested network. The spatial temporal variations in the value of λ affects vehicular traffic flow. This study proposed a Congestion Control Model and perform simulation in MATLAB. In this model, vehicular density and number of vehicles were held constant while varying the value of λ from 1 to 10. The simulation result reveals the vehicle trajectories as the value of λ increases with time. The outcome of this study indicates that there is no need increasing the value of λ beyond 12, since further increases would only increase the number of vehicles leading to traffic jam. In principle, it is very important to use 1≤ λ ≤12 in designing traffic models in VANETs. The analytical result proved that the Congestion Control Model for the four-lane may be the most appropriate model to be adopted and use in designing VANETs networks.
