LA: A Hotbed for Fictional Terror

We confess. We're not watching 24 this season. The first three seasons, we'd get all caught up in the story and then, invariably, we'd miss a week or two and then be utterly lost in the story. 24 episodes in a row of a series without a break is quite a commitment. Our commitment-phobia now has us in trouble, though, because DCist has a question.

We're pretty sure there's no part of Los Angeles where Olympic Boulevard and Collier Avenue meet (Do we even have a Collier Avenue?) but now we want to know where this fictional "Broad Street Tunnel" is really supposed to be and why the terrorists love it so. And, DCist is right, why does LA get all the terror love? Can't Jack Bauer go on vacation and leave our city free from nuclear attacks and hostage crises for a season or two?
