The Police Department in San Francisco is looking for a group of people that amused themselves by turning over Smart Fortwo vehicles between Sunday and Monday night.
NBC Bay area reported finding three Smart Fortwo cars knocked over in the streets of the northern California city. A witness reported seeing a group of 7 or 8 people approaching a Smart Fortwo around 1:00 AM on Monday morning. A few minutes later, the car was flipped backwards and resting on its bumper. “It looked like a dachshund sitting on its hind legs,” the man told NBC Bay Area.
The Smart Fortwo is one of the lightest cars on the market. It weighs only 1,808 pounds or 822 kilos. During the events that followed the Stanley Cup final in Vancouver in 2011, a video showing a group of individuals trying to turn over a Smart went viral on social media.
Five years ago, an article in the Toronto Star cited several examples of Smart models turned over across Canada.
