Also stopped warning of rumble strips, which is annoying since they're
almost impossible to spot in advance in Oklahoma, as most of them are
unpainted and, depending on the vehicle really try to wrest control of the
steering away from motorists or introduce harmonic oscillation (aka speed
wobbles) in two wheeled vehicles in the worst case, and really give you a
good jumpscare at best.

I honestly miss getting "Attention: Rumble strip" out of Osmand.
