Vandals tip over Smart Cars in San Francisco, stumping local police

The San Francisco Police Department is now looking for a few people responsible for flipping Smart Cars over in two different SF neighborhoods

A recent rash of Smart Cars being tipped over in San Francisco has the police department on the lookout for a small group of vandals. Three of the vehicles were flipped within a 10-block radius of one another, with a fourth flipped in a separate neighborhood.

 

 

The SFPD is investigating each case as felony vandalism, with early reports indicating the cars are likely total losses. A Smart Car weighs around 1,800 pounds, and can obviously be manipulated by a few motivated pranksters.

Local San Francisco Bay Area media had a field day throwing around this vandalism as a form of "urban cow tipping," though car owners and area residents aren't amused.
