brake lights stay on after engine shut off?

Noticed by many other car drivers.

Try reaching down and pulling up on the brake pedal to see if the brake pedal is slightly down and if the lights go out. If they do not reach up under the dash following the brake pedal assembly and locate the brake switch. If you release the lock tab on the electrical connector by pushing down on the tab on the connector going to the brake light switch then remove the connector from the switch do the lights go out? If they do this means that the switch is out of adjustment or the switch contacts are stuck closed. This is about the only thing that can cause the brake lights to stay on unless you have some sort of aftermarket towing package which may have a electronic switching box that could shorted causing the lights to stay on. 

This basic details will help.
