Ingress refers to the right to enter a property, while egress refers to the right to exit a property. For example, a driveway provides ingress and egress from roadways to houses and businesses.

Entrances and exits to controlled-access highways are provided at interchanges by ramps, which allow for speed changes between the highway and arterials and collector roads.
