Wind shield wiper cut off switch

Repeating as necessary! However, with this van they get tucked back under the hood, when the are turned off. Even if I turn off the ignition, they still return home! I would like to have a 'kill' switch so that I can turn them off, while they are in an exposed position! Ideally, the switch would break the circuit to prevent their return, but would restore to normal once the switch is released! Anybody have any idea on how to do this?
Just turn the ignition switch to off with the wipers on. It should stop wherever they are at the time.
