Does anyone know the cause of Fridays trafic jam from hell (22nd nov) , which snarled up all the roads around the elephant and castle's road and beyond? One friend took 5 hours to get from Brixton to West Square. We left our car in Garden Row at 7pm and walked to our destination, 3 hours latter no change, the bus driver I spoke to had taken an hour and a half to get from E&C to the imperial war musem and some drivers had parked up on the pavements and left their cars there. I know traffic is getting worse but I've never known a complete stand still for so long and for What?

It was completely gridlocked all the way back to Fulham and even took ages by pushbike. I think it was all due to the number of tube stations which were closed due to the fireman's strike.
