I was rear ended earlier today it was very low impact probably around 15-20 mph. My car still drive fine but when I got home I realized that my brake lights are staying on. What could possibly be the cause of this?

Check the brake pedal arm where the brake light switch contacts. There should be a little plastic/rubber pad where the switch contacts. If it is not there and you see a hole in the bracket, the switch pad has broken and fallen out. New ones are available at your local dealership for not too much.

You can use a bolt through the hole. Use the head of the bolt as the contact point, and lock it down on the backside with a nut. It has held for years with no problems.
