Smart Cars target of city version of cow-tipping

SAN FRANCISCO (CNN) — It’s apparently the city version of cow-tipping.

Authorities in San Francisco are looking for a group of vandals accused of overturning at least three Smart Cars early Friday morning.

Police say the suspects wore black-hooded sweatshirts. In the video, you can see the tipped two-seat, German-made cars.

Officials say they weigh about 1,600 pounds and are relatively easy to tip.

Smart Cars are popular in areas like San Francisco because of their gas mileage, and they’re easy to park in tight spots.

Meanwhile, car-tipping is classified as a felony vandalism.
