The country has a low rate of car ownership of 140 per 1000 population, however in comparison to the other developing economies of the BRIC group Brazil exceeds India and China.

The Brazilian Highway System (Portuguese: Sistema Nacional de Viação) is the highway system of Brazil, the fourth largest in the World. As of 2010, the system consists of almost 2 million kilometers of roads, of which approximately 200,000 km are paved as its shown in Brazil highway map. Annually, it is estimated that more than 1.2 billion people travel in the Brazilian highways (against the 120 million travelling in airlines).

As it is in the United States, Canada or most countries in Europe, larger/wider highways have higher speed limits than normal urban roads (typically between 80 km/h and 120 km/h as its mentioned in Brazil highway map), although minor highways, unpaved highways and sections of major highways running inside urban areas have a lower speed limit in general. The national blank speed limit for cars driving in non-urban roads in Brazil is 110 km/h unless otherwise stated, regardless of the road design, weather or daylight.

Brazilian Regional highways are named YY-XXX, where YY is the abbreviation of the state where the highway is running in and XXX is a number (e.g. SP-280; where SP means that the highway is under São Paulo state administration). Brazilian National highways are named BR-XXX as you can see in Brazil highway map. National highways connect multiple states altogether, are of major importance to the national economy and/or connect Brazil to another country.
