Yes. Spread your legs.Cycle Boy - You don't use e-bikes, I do - We can talk about what's what. Cycling purest but I've done major miles on Ebikes and I know what I'm talking about.
Hang on so you stopped for a moment to let traffic go and you had that "jump" and accelerate from the motor that pushed you forward?
Your e-bike will push you forward. It's a motor, it's a kick.
When you unexpectedly arrive at a junction and forget to change the assist - Spread your legs so if you get that motor kick you can plan for it.

Power down and spread your legs on either side,
Always have your fingers on the brake levers to stop that little jump into traffic.
