Is my Saturn supposed to run, shift, even drive without the key in the ignition?

(2000 Saturn SL1)
in Johnsonburg, PA on May 20, 2014
The car runs without the key in the ignition. I discovered that by accident when I was in a hurry one day. I didn't realize it would drive like that, until I drove somewhere one day, and when I went to shut the car off and take the key out, the key was already out. I had put it in the console and forgot to put it in the ignition when I started driving.

I do the Saturn work here in the town I live in. The dealer sends them to us. Just check with your GM dealer. Good Luck

That could be a serious problem , if you have children!
