Posted on 06/07/2014 6:14:43 PM PDT by windcliff
Two more instances of Smart car "tipping" occurred overnight in San Francisco's Twin Peaks and Cole Valley neighborhoods, according to police.
The latest "tippings" of the small two-seat cars were reported at 3:41 a.m. at Clayton Street and Parnassus Avenue and at 5:38 a.m. in the 1300 block of Clayton Street, near 17th Street, according to police.
These incident follow a series of tippings reported about two months ago.
Three Smart cars were tipped early one morning in April within a 10-block radius near Bernal Heights.
The prank is considered felony vandalism, according to police.

They sound like stupid cars to me.
Modern day cow tipping.
It would really piss me off it it happened to me. But considering the sort who are likely to be Smart owners in Baghdad-by-the-Bay are, it gives me a warm sense of schadenfreude.
Stupid, useless and expensive.
Hey, that describes most liberals, too!
This guy's just asking for it.
According to police eh?
Criminal menacing is also a crime. Did the police arrest anyone protesting and threatening google workers?
If they are so smart why don’t they upright themselves.
I’m pretty sure it was the wind.
Most Smarts that I see here in Texas are driven by older liberal males.
Austin is full of the little buggers, for rent on the side of the street.
“When I was younger
“I used to tip smart cars for fun, yeah
“Actually, I didn’t do that
“’Cause I didn’t want the car to be sad...”
I do not understand why kids, I assume they are who is doing this, would destroy another man’s property. They are stealing the use and money the man used to purchase it.
Apparently they have never read the 10 Commandments. They are not the Ten Suggestions. It is time their idiot parents are held responsible for the actions of their probably 20 something year old kids, who by now are supposed to be adults.
I have had a bad day dealing with spoiled over 20 so called kids who need their sorry buttocks kicked.
What happened with this deserter can be and should be laid at the door of his brainwashed America hating parents. It is pass time to correct these fools and their offspring. There is only one way to do it.
Yeah, they should use a mat so they don’t scratch the car.
I saw one set on a picnic table.
They buy it because it makes them look and feel like they care due to it’s unique design, just like the Prius. In realty, you can get cheaper cars with equivelent or better mileage, but that dosen’t matter to them.
There are REAL cars that get better mpg and are SAFE to drive. i.e. VW TDI Jetta
Why bother with these stupid golf carts?
Cow tipping is much more difficult.
The cow may get up & charge, or Farmer John is right there with his shotgun from all the bellowing & mooing.
If I’m going to drive a car that small, I want to be able to carry it around, like The Jetsons’ car.
The mileage they get for their size is appalling though I have seen them parked in some very tight spots - sometimes perpendicular to the curb in places where other cars are parallel.
Life Lesson: Don’t buy a car from Toys ‘R Us.
Me too but still funny.Every time I see one of these POS cars on the road I look at the driver and say to me.Wack Job Lib
I saw one the other day in my workplace parking lot and it had a USGA window decal on the back. Instantly I thought: where does this person put their clubs?
Did any of these have Obama/Biden bumper stickers on them?
These racist, anti-Obama gays are ruining San Francisco...
Maybe it was just the awesome power and a wheelstand that got out of control?
When you come right down to it, they’re very well engineered and designed for city-dwellers.
Therein lies the problem. City-dwellers are the problem.
Minneapolis is littered with those things to. People leave them everywhere. 15 minute parking zones, commercial only, unpaid parking meters...
I think they have some agreement with the city to allow for that, but man it sucks when the same POS sits in a 15 minute zone for days.
If the tippers are ILLEGALS, they’ll just get a free meal and a notice to return for a court date (LOL).
A BMW that lights the occupants’ farts?
high school football team did this with the principals Geo Metro when I was a kid...
Then that winter they did it again but placed it on a snow bank.
south africa has the right idea here, i wish my vehicle had this.
“There are REAL cars that get better mpg and are SAFE to drive. i.e. VW TDI Jetta. Why bother with these stupid golf carts?”
A TDI Jetta with automatic, AC, cruise, and a Radio is $26,000 + tax.
The wife’s 2014 Smart cost less than $15,000 out the door with all of the above, plus Mercedes service, roadside, and support. She gets 36-43 MPG in the city (w/wo the AC on). Winter formulation ethanol fuel kills the power, but I found a place with “Agricultural Gasoline” (100% go-juice) that solves that problem.
All told, the cost of ownership, including fuel, Ins, Depreciation, plates, etc., makes it insanely cheap to drive.
It makes a great second, or in our case, third car. It would suck as your only ride, though.
I remember hearing of a VW Beetle sitting in a teacher’s classroom when he came back from lunch.
I just looked at the pictures in the story. They DID lay down blankets to keep from scratching the car.
Most liberals are, at heart insecure and immature. They need their egos stroked constantly. Above all else they need to feel like they are “good people”. Because of their immaturity and insecurity they are followers, not leaders. They need others to validate them and boost their fragile self esteem. Because of this they are susceptible to being manipulated. They bend to and fro on the winds of fads and popular opinion. Liberals buy these kinds of cars because somebody told them they’re better for the planet, and “good people” want to “save” their planet. Liberals do not buck trends. The two hardest words for a liberal to say are “I disagree”. Now I ask you, do we really want these kinds of peole running our government?
Smart car requires premium gasoline, which makes it a poor choice, imo.
Personally I like the 1989 Batmobile from the Batman movie with the big flame shooting out the back.
That isn’t a Smart Car.
Might have been a compact CUV. Now it’s a Super Compact.
The car I’m looking at for my next car is a Chevy spark. It has a direct injected 1.2 liter four, gets 40 mpg, has some ungodly amount of airbags and a 5 star crash rating. Despite the fact that I’m 6’4” tall it’s comfortable and roomy inside (the trunk is kinda a joke but you can’t have everything) and they start at $12,500. I commute 50 miles one way and to cut my fuel usage 25% comes close to cutting the overall cost of operating the vehicle by a third. The spark comes with a/m f/m X/m radio standard and a touch screen that is bluetooth capable and smart-phone friendly. For the price you can’t beat it.
