A driveway is a type of private road for local access to one or a small group of structures, and is owned and maintained by an individual or group.
Driveways do not usually have traffic lights. However, at a few driveways to commercial businesses and parks in which there is more traffic than a "Private Drive", there is an exception.
Driveways can be decorative in ways that public roads can not, due to their lighter traffic or the willingness of an owner to invest in their construction. Driveways are not resurfaced, snow blown or otherwise kept up by governmental bodies. They are often designed to conform to the architecture of the connected home or other building.
