Sounds like the following rider's fault. Too fast, too close, wrong reaction.
If your safety depends on someone else doing something just right, you're doing it wrong.
Case in point, I try not to corner faster than I can see around the corner. There's a winding section of road on my way to work where I love to get a little off the seat and get some cornering in. I generally look as far as I can ahead so I don't get surprised by something out of the ordinary. This morning, that case existed in the form of a stopped car partway through the curve. You couldn't see it approaching the curve, or during tip-in. However, because I wasn't speeding, I saw the car and was able to slow, stand the bike up, and stop. No drama, no problem.
Never ride faster than you can stop
