CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

I have witnessed on multiple occasions a Black Volkswagen reg VO60 WPM speeding through the 30 mph section of the B4042 in Brinkworth at what I estimate to be up to 50 mph and overtaking other vehicles. Today I caught up with him on reaching Malmesbury as he had got caught in traffic and then followed him to Dyson. It appears he also works there and as such I imagine he is doing this everyday. I have only seen him on a Wednesday but that is because I cycle to work every other day of the week so our commutes dont coincide. He comes through Brinkworth at approximately 0710 at which time their are children around waiting for buses. Today he overtook me whilst I was overtaking a parked car so straddling both lanes he squeezed between me and the curb on the other side of the road. I am concerned that someone will get hurt and think that a speed trap could quickly catch him. I did ring 101 but was told to report it this way.
