1. An integrated telecommunications roadside unit comprising:
a processor; and
a memory that stores computer-executable instructions that, in response to execution by the processor, cause the processor to perform operations comprising:
intercepting a vehicle-to-vehicle communication that is provided from a first vehicle to a second vehicle, wherein the first vehicle, the second vehicle, and the integrated telecommunications roadside unit are within a direct communication range,
determining, based at least in part on the vehicle-to-vehicle communication, that an extant condition exists,
determining that the vehicle-to-vehicle communication was transmitted by the first vehicle via a direct transmission mode, wherein the direct transmission mode indicates that the vehicle-to-vehicle communication is configured for transmission without traversing a network,
generating a user plane package that conforms with a network access protocol of the network,
encapsulating the vehicle-to-vehicle communication in the user plane package,
routing, by a network access transceiver of the integrated telecommunications roadside unit via the network, the user plane package encapsulating the vehicle-to-vehicle communication to a destination network access node outside of the direct communication range,
after routing the user plane package encapsulating the vehicle-to-vehicle communication to the destination network access node, determining, based at least in part on a subsequent vehicle-to-vehicle communication, that the extant condition no longer exists, and
instructing the destination network access node to cease distributing the vehicle-to-vehicle communication.
