Tube Strike 1962 Style: Hilarious Footage Of London's Commuters Getting To Work (PICTURES, VIDEO)

More of London seems to be cycling, running and walking to work at the moment as those pesky tube workers go on strike.

A strike in 2010..

In 2001..

The roads were at gridlock, the voiceover reveals, while 90% of commuters managed to arrive late for work - some not making it in until lunchtime.
