You've probably heard of the urban (well, technically, rural) myth of cow-tipping, where someone sneaks up on an unsuspecting cow and push to tip it over. Well, cows aren't exactly common in San Francisco, so vandals there decided to flip over Smart cars instead.
NBC Bay Area reports [self-starting video] that three Smart cars were found flipped on the rough streets of San Francisco. Witness Brandon Michael said that he witnessed six to eight suspects wearing hoodies huddled around a Smart car. "They looked like they were up to no good," Michael said," And sure enough, they huddled around it and lifted it up." The tipped 1,500-pound cars "look[ed] like they are dachshunds sitting on their hund legs," he added.
Smart car-tipping isn't exactly a new phenomenon and while the flipped cars may look amusing to bystanders, the damage could be in the thousands of dollars.
