What the above data tell us:

Vehicle registrations increased 18.2% over the last 10 years in both Fort Collins and Loveland, compared to 17.0% for all of Larimer County. The total county population 16 years and over increased 17.8% during this same time period.

Overall, the number of registered vehicles declined slightly between 2005 and 2006. Effective January 1, 2007, there was a change in emissions law which may have contributed to the decline. Owners of vehicles unable to pass emissions in 2006 may have waited until 2007 to register.
