In this paper we describe a simulation study of the impact of vehicular traffic on the performance of cellular wireless network at microwave carrier frequencies above 3 GHz and up to 15 GHz, where the first and subsequent tiers co-channel interfering cells are active. The uplink information capacity of the cellular wireless network is used for the performance analysis. The simulation results show that vehicular traffic causes a decrease in the information apacity of a cellular wireless network. Results also show that for both light and heavy vehicular traffic environment, the nclusion of subsequent tier co-channel interferences caused a decrease of between 3 - 12% in the information capacity of the cellular wireless network as compared to the case, when only the first tier co-channel interferences are active.
