it is a warning to advise you either the keys are in the car or the lights are on - only reason it is there is to remind you to look before departing the vehicle

Its a warning to let you know that the lights are on and the keys still in the ignition, so that you don't leave them on (draining the battery) or lock the keys in the car. You can pull a fuse to turn it off, but I don't know that it's worth it.
