If you overtake and then slow down in front of them, that's cutting someone off, and puts you at fault. Try proving someone did that to you in court. When the cop shows up and sees a read-end collision, he doesn`t even ask; he writes the ticket for the guy in the back. If you take it to court, all you`ll get is the bum`s rush to the cash register. Then you have to eat the deductible on your car (or the whole damned bill if you don`t carry collision), and you`ll get boned up the @$$ on your insurance rates for the next 2 years. (In my case, the insurance company got ALL their damned money back.)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! ... *gasps for air* ... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
... and the nonchalant ... "check my bumper first" ... was the icing on the cake.
I don't care what the car driver did - you don`t pull your bike in front of a car and slam on your brakes anymore than you pull your car in front of a semi or a train and slam on your brakes. You`re going to lose and lose huge. Cyclist was a drating idiot and the inevitable happened.
What pisses me off is in the US there are always pushes for "START SEEING MOTORCYCLES" and most, not all, motorcycle riders around here are blatant drattard morons. I`m within 3 degrees of separation of no less than 5 bikers that are crippled or are vegetables because of bike accidents and every single one of them ... it was their fault, not the car driver (or in one case, the semi, and in another case, a tractor).
