A jury would have regarded fresh evidence which showed that the speed limit on a road was 60 miles per hour and not 20mph as highly relevant to the question of whether the appellant driver had been driving dangerously. The new evidence might reasonably have affected the decision of the jury to convict and therefore the conviction for dangerous driving was unsafe.
