Your Smart car may be easy to park in tight spaces but apparently may also be easy to tip over.

Authorities in San Francisco are looking for suspects who flipped four smart cars on Monday. Officer Gordan Shyy, a police spokesman, said “It’s hard to determine a motive without any suspects identified or in custody.” The suspects will face felony vandalism charges if they are caught.
