In this paper, we propose using ZigBee for Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). Most of the accidents these days are caused because of drivers not knowing the upcoming traffic hurdles like curves, traffic signals, railway lines and etc. If drivers come to know about the upcoming signals, curves, and railways lines etc the accidents can be avoided. The aim is to provide drivers with intelligent roads so that they can receive the information about the curves and the traffic signals ahead. After receiving the information about the signals ahead, drivers will be careful; this will help avoid the road accidents. Many researches are taking place in the world in the field of ITS and many useful systems are also built but no system is built using this remarkable ZigBee technology. ZigBee is low cost as compared to other short range wireless technologies which will help reduce the total cost of the system, enabling this system to be deployed in developing countries as well.
