Brake lights stay on even when car is off. on 2001 Honda Accord

The 2 brakelights as well as the center taillight stay on even without the key is not in the ignition. Also, there was a few small pieces of broken plastic on my floorboard when I noticed the lights were on, not sure if they are related but found it odd What is the problem and how can it be fixed. Not very mechanically inclined

By the brake pedal there is a brake light switch, normally the stopper goes out...you can try to plug it with a bolt and screw small enough to get in that hole. zero dollars pretty much
Thank you. That was the problem. Used a golf tee and duct tape to fix. No issues since
Possibly a loose wire or brake pedal is sticking a bit. Stop at a shop and ask if the can take a quick look.
