London chokes as over a million people drive to work

It’s been a while since the last ‘pea-souper’ in London.

Today, because millions of drivers took to their cars for Drive to Work Day, the streets were filled with a thick dense smog.

Good to see that the Met was taking our protest seriously and had sent traffic police and PCSOs to keep an eye on things at many junctions in the across the city:


One again we’d like to thanks everyone who drove to work today creating such a lovely atmosphere across London and other parts of the country.

(Where were the bicyclers? We found only one on our drive, can you spot him?)


See you all on Thursday 11th December 2014

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I’m working on a Channel 5 documentary about commuting and looking for someone who drives to work in London and sits in gridlock traffic for 45 minutes or so.

    Do you know anyone who might be interested in taking part?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,

    Will Steel
