Im planning on driving back to cornwall from loughborough on Sunday, I was going to leave PM around 6, however i think i want to be home by then, i was thinking of leaving around 6am, what is traffic usually like then? It will only be my 2nd time driving on motorway and this distance. The first was night time 7-12ish. Thanks. The route google maps is taking me is m42 going onto the m5 all the way to the a38 devon expressway. Then to a couple big roundabouts and dual carriageway back. Thanks
6am on a Sunday will be quiet on the roads. They'll busy up around 9am and stay medium-busy throughout the day until 5-6pm. They won't be nearly as busy as during the day in the week or rush hours. Once you get past Exeter the roads will be pretty chill regardless of time of day on a Sunday. It's only a four hour drive so if you leave around 6am you should have most of it done and be on the quieter roads in Devon/Cornwall by the time Sunday traffic starts building up.
