This is a general question, not specific to the case above: If a taxi driver is bailed to appear for trial on a serious charge that suggested being a danger to the public, would s/he be allowed meanwhile to ply for trade?

he would be allowed to continue working, his court appearance is not till august so he is innocent until a court finds him guilty so legally he can not be stopped working....imagine what would happen if he got found not guilty and was not allowed to work until his court date.....massive payout from council for breaching his rights.....so my guess he is out on the road now......
