How many cars are registered in Connecticut?

Does Connecticut have a lot of cars? I’m really nervous about driving through the state on a road trip this summer because one of my friends told me that the traffic there is really bad.

According to the 2020 census, there are 1,211,171 cars in Connecticut. However, the concentration of cars will be different depending on which road you’re on and your proximity to the nearest city.
There are a few things you can do to make driving through Connecticut a little easier and to avoid the worst traffic:
  • Don’t drive during rush hour. You’ll see a lot more traffic when driving from 6:00–9:00 AM and 4:00–7:00 PM due to people commuting to and from work.
  • Stick to smaller roads. Big highways and interstates will typically see a lot more traffic than smaller roads, so avoiding large highways is a good way to steer clear of traffic jams.
  • Watch out for construction. Research the area you’ll be driving in before you leave so you can avoid big construction zones, where traffic may bottleneck.
If you’re going on a road trip, it’s also really important to have a good car insurance policy covering your vehicle. The Jerr​​y app can help. Jerry scans quotes from more than 50 top insurers and delivers the best deals straight to you. The average user saves nearly $900 per year.
