How many cars are in Missouri?

I recently moved to St. Louis. While the traffic can get downright awful, it’s nothing like it was when I was living in Atlanta. How many cars are there in Missouri?

Trying to navigate I-270 or I-55 during rush hour in St. Louis can be stressful, but interestingly, the state actually has a declining rate of car ownership.
The U.S. Census Bureau reported that there were 5.6 million cars in Missouri in 2020.
Missouri ranks as the ninth-worst state for driving, primarily due to an inordinate amount of accidents. It is also one of only two states that have no laws regarding texting and driving or cell phone use.
So whether you’re driving on 44 in St. Louis or navigating the backroads of the Ozarks, use caution wherever you go. And don’t forget that you need a quality car insurance policy. However, you don’t have to pay a ton for it.
