Everyday, vehicles transit in a city and along their trajectories, they encounter other vehicles. The frequencyo f these encounters is influenced by many factors, such as: vehicle speed, destinations, traffic conditions, and the period of the day. However, these factors are justified by the public roads limits and the driver's behavior. The people present daily routinesa n d similar behaviors that have a great impact in the daily traffic evolution. In this work, we present a numerical analysis

Social metrics are computed, and the results obtained are compared to random graphs in the direction to verify if vehicular network presents a social behavior. Finally, we discuss new social perspectives in vehicular networks.
