There weren't speed bumps in MD either and a section of Georgia Ave. was still unpaved near the Howard-Carroll line - but times have changed. Now both DC and suburban MD feature varius "traffic calming" measures such as mid block stop signs (Oregon Ave., Nebraska Ave, etc.), mid block traffic lights (Kansas Ave., IIRC), mid block pedestrian crossings (Arcola Ave.), speed bumps (Sligo Creek Parway and many, many others) and curb escursions/choke-outs (Kemp Mill Rd.) etc., etc...
