Vandals Flip Over Smart Cars In San Francisco

Among the ten commandments of the car guy, near the top is "Thou shalt not mess with thy neighbor's vehicle, regardless of how awful it may be." That said, we can't help but giggle every time we look at the image above.

Apparently, some delinquents in San Francisco, bereft of bovines to tip, have taken to tipping Smart ForTwos, like some absurd, real-life version of the tractor-tipping scene from Cars. Witnesses told KRON-4 in San Francisco that eight people, wearing hoods, were responsible for tipping three Smarts. While the vehicle above was tipped on its rear hatch, the other two were tipped on their side and roof, respectively.

"All of a sudden I just see eight hooded figures walk up to the car," witness Brandon Michael told KRON. "I thought it looked like they were up to no good. And then sure enough they walk up to this smart car right here, all huddle around it, and then lift it up and set it on its hind legs."

As of right now, the suspects are still on the loose.

      Luckily, morons who do this kind of thing just can't keep their mouths shut. They'll want to tell others about it, and then they'll be caught.

      It may give folks a chuckle to see the images whether you like the cars or not, and granted it's not the worst thing you can do to a vehicle, but it's vandalism nonetheless and I'm sure it's no laughing matter to the car owners. The thugs doing this should be caught and arrested and made to pay for the damages before they go any further. Today it's tipping over smart cars, tomorrow it'll be breaking into cars or stealing them outright.

      Property crimes in SF are not against the law. That is why they are so common there. Law enforcement does not get involved, that is what insurance is for. Call a SF cop if you're being assaulted at gun point and they might respond

      ...........Cow tipping?........Great line! When we were young it was turning "beetles" in their parking slots. This is pretty much mean spirited, to flip cars over. That said, those cars are no more than roller skates or "rolling coffins".

      Just another fine example of a lack of respect or others property in our society these day's, in the 60's people would move small VW's and Renaults but never tipped them over to cause damage.
