Is there a website showing busy motorway dates/times?

Is there a website or some other source that uses past data to advise when the busiest times/dates are on major motorways?

I'm specifically asking about M1/M6 but a general website would also be helpful.

I have read that generally Saturday lunchtimes are busy.

BBC Northampton hope this helps
IIRC Google maps will show a traffic overlay. I think you can set that to a prediction for a time and day, based on historical data
Most motorways are busy in the daytime and quiet over night.

No web help needed.(_;)

Google maps is saying that on 12pm on a Saturday the traffic on the M5 is fast.

People have been telling me the opposite.

Are there any alternatives?
transportdirect can display historic data for particular routes and locations. Hope this is what you are looking for.
For the current traffic, including cameras and average speeds etc, i think traffic england is the best for motorways.
sorry bobjohnson,

Thank you all.

I was actually looking for predicted traffic but I guess I'm just gonna have to look at traffic cameras exactly a week before I plan to travel.
