Was the author (and proofreader?) drunk?

Thanks for your sharp eye for catching the duplication in the first paragraph, and it was 1 a.m., which might explain seeing double. :D

Gee, isn't this spot the start of the freeway, because most drivers think it is. It is time we get someone to slow down the traffic along this street---we have had more than our share of accidents. Thanks Pat Towner, President University Park Estates Neighborhood Association
