How many cars are in Montana?

After moving to Montana, I feel like there are more cars than there are drivers. I understand the need for cars to go off-roading or hunting, but the amount of vehicles seems like overkill. How many cars are there in Montana?

If you’ve noticed an inordinate amount of vehicles in Montana, you have a keen sense of observation. Montana has the highest rate of car ownership in America with nearly two cars for every resident.
Per the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 1.95 million cars registered in the state. When you take into account that Montana only has 1.06 million residents, the number of cars is shocking.
However, the low amount of congestion and high quality of the infrastructure make driving easy in Montana. Even still, the state has a disproportionately high amount of traffic accidents and fatalities, primarily due to weather conditions, high speed limits, and rural roadways.
