speed p8: crank tips hitting/scratching the body

Speed p8's crank tips (where the pedal screws on to) scratches the body.

When folded and when rear wheel moves, the pedal rotates towards the frame (below where it folds) and it hits/scratches the paintjob.

Is this a common issue??

I can see this happening often since the cranks are not locked and easily moved with force when the wheel rotates even during storage.
