Tiny cars tipped over in San Francisco

San Francisco is seeing a spate of mini cars being tipped over in the middle of the night, but police don't know if the acts are a protest or a prank.
 
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that two Smart cars were found turned on their sides less than a mile apart early Friday.
 
The incidents came two months after four other Smart cars were toppled in another part of the city.
 
Smart cars are small, eco-friendly vehicles that weigh about 1,800 pounds, which is about 1,200 pounds less than a Toyota Prius.
 
San Francisco police spokesman Gordon Shyy says police are investigating the episodes as vandalism but that no arrests have been made.
 
The Chronicle says car-tippings also have been reported in Amsterdam and Canada.
