Why do I continually see the phrase 'ATM machine' in print and from otherwise intelligent publishing outlets? We all know it's redundant...

I understand hearing people say 'ATM machine' out of habit (much like we hear inaccurate phrases like 'could care less') but I am disturbed when I read the obviously redundant phrase in news publications and on otherwise reliable signage.
Has this become an acceptable idiom to everyone but me?
