I liked this example of unnecessary (and unneeded!) repetition in my local newspaper:
Police officers would be able to park all their squad cars next to the station and be able to drive through a 24-foot-wide parking lot aisle, instead of the existing 12-foot-wide alley.12 + 12 . . . yes, it checks out.
"It is going to double the width of the access," [the city planner] said.
