I certainly hear you but lest you go on lamenting, let me assure you this is nothing new. It is also the reason myself and so many other of the older riders are always harping on wearing the gear while we know that many take it as just "Dad"
I've been watching it for 35 years and in my younger days even participated in some squidliness a little bit.
Fortunately for me and for some unknown reason, I ALWAYS wore jacket, helmet, boots, and gloves. As a result, my 7 or 8 spills that count, all in my first few years, left me without so much as a scar to show for it. That is lucky in itself even with gear, but I probably wouldn't be posting right now if it hadn't been for the helmet I had on in one of those spills. It was one of the slower ones, about 35 MPH, but wound up hitting and sliding hard on the left side of the helmet to the point that it was ground almost through. Walked away unscathed, slightly bruised, but good to go. I wore the gear originally because it seemed like a good idea. After a few spills, I knew it was and as a result, don't even ride the block to the store without it.
It's never easy to dismiss an injured rider's pain or death, especially when it's so often totally preventable with decent gear. If they only knew. I'm just suggesting that it's not a new thing, although the overpowered bikes in the hands of inexperienced riders isn't helping. Just carry on, keeping your brain engaged. That's no guarantee but good sense and good gear improves your odds tremendously.
