Over the past decade, the vehicular Ad-hoc networks (VANETs) has testified significant attention from authors to safe peoples lives, reduce money consumption and accident. Most of the previous studies focused on clustering especially on electing cluster-head to increase cluster stability. However, no one addressed the effect of the number of connection at the base station (BS). This is because when CH was connected to the base station, it still reserved the link until the vehicle was turned off or moved from BS to another BS. In this paper, proposed a novel method called intelligent cluster head (ICH) to increase cluster stability, and at the same time reduce the number of uplink connection at the base station (BS). In this study, the same mobile BS was used if there was no need for establishment of new BS for VANETs. The simulation was done by using MATLAB through a real data. The results showed that the proposed method provided less number of uplink connections than other previous studies and enhancing the stability of the system. The proposed method resulted in less number of CH by 53.92 % from previous methods.
