No, they don't.

Motorcyclists (and, come to that, cyclists) have to ride with the assumption that everyone else on the road is an idiot who has the potential to kill them.

But self-evidently that doesn't extend to braking to walking speed every time they pass a junction, which is the only way you can guarantee not hitting someone who has pulled out on you at the last moment.
