This city likes to consider itself a trendsetter. And the excited response to the furtive tipping of four diminutive Smart cars early Monday morning just may have succeeded in sparking a trend. Police believe a single group of six to eight "individuals" in black hoodies was responsible for placing all four of the tiny eco-friendly cars on their sides, roofs or back ends beginning at 1 a.m. Three of the incidents occurred in the increasingly costly -- in keeping with other San Francisco trends -- neighborhood of Bernal Heights.
