How many cars are in Maryland?

I’m in the midst of accepting a job offer in Maryland. While I’m excited about the move, I haven’t driven in years because I lived in New York City. Now that I’m moving, my employer strongly recommended that I buy a car. To calm my nerves, I just want to know what I’m getting into. How many cars are there in Maryland?

Depending on where you live in Maryland, having a car isn’t 100% necessary—the state has the ninth-lowest rate of car ownership in the country. Since your employer is recommending it, however, buying a car is probably in your best interest.
The U.S. Census Bureau reported that there were 4.2 million cars in Maryland in 2020. While 9% of households don’t own a car, many families seem to have a couple.
If you accept the job offer in Maryland, you’ll probably have plenty on your mind. Even so, don’t forget about your driver’s license and car insurance. Maryland gives you 60 days to get a state-issued license and switch your car insurance policy, but the sooner you do it, the better. That’s when Jerry can help.
