    b) measuring elapsed time commencing instantaneously upon said inputting of the start signal;

    c) manually inputting a stop signal corresponding to a vehicle exiting the premeasured distance;

    d) capturing the elapsed time corresponding to the inputting of said stop signal;

    e) calculating the velocity of the vehicle;

    f) converting the vehicle velocity to miles per hour;

    g) displaying the vehicle velocity information on a computer screen;

    g) comparing the vehicle velocity to a predetermined velocity value;

    h) determining if the vehicle velocity exceeds said predetermined velocity value; and

    i) signaling to an operator if the vehicle exceeds the predetermined velocity value.
