Don't forget that you see a lot more cars from southern states than you think, but most do not have plates on the front, so you are less likely to notice them.

In Boston you see a ton of Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York, Connecticut and New Jersey plates. Lately I have been seeing a large number of Ohio plates and a good number of California plates.

NJ, PA, MA, CT and VT >>> everyone else.

If youre in Western NY, id bet more Ontario plates and Ohio and less NJ and NE plates.

North Jersey: mostly NY, occasionally FL or CA, and PA

South Jersey: NY and PA. It's the shore towns. New Yorkers think they own the place in the summer. And so do people from Philadelphia, way down the shore. Sometimes we have to remind them it's not their state

I've noticed when traveling around the US that I see more Vermont plates than all the other New England states put together. Maybe it's because of their distinctive color, but Vermont plates are very often seen around the country.

Oregon plates are also disproportionately common with respect to the state's population. And Idaho much more often seen than Montana. I think, per capita, the state most likely to be seen is South Carolina, for some reason, and Louisiana seems to be very rare. People in south Louisiana seem very disinclined to travel out of state much.
