Absolutely, don't race the car in front of you, race the cars ahead of that person. If somebody three cars in front of you hits the brakes, it won't take long for the brake lights to be right in front of you. Hell, I do this in everyday driving on the interstate.
Same goes when you are alone. Don't wait to make a decision on the corner right in front of you until you get there, you should already be making a decision on the next corner.
