There was an article is SSA July issue about an electric golf cart runaway situation damaging aircraft (ignition not turned off). I don't know if we have ever had such an incident? However, are we in clubs in the habit of shutting the electrical switch off when we get out of the vehicle? I think not.

I'll attest to the fact that many times it has not been turned off and also that I had no idea this was a potential problem. Describing how a driver-less golf cart ran into the wing of a pilot-less aircraft would be tough to describe to the insurance.
