MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Maryland: Daniel Zubairi, a former Republican congressional candidate from Montgomery County, has announced that with the help of a group called Maryland for Responsible Enforcement he intends to collect approximately 53,000 signatures to force a veto referendum on a bill passed in spring 2009 by the Maryland General Assembly that authorizes speed-monitoring cameras near highway work zones and schools.

Zubairi's group believes that speed enforcement cameras are (a) an ineffective money grab and (b) unconstitutionally deny citizens the right to face their accuser.[1]
