Mine does too - the switch assembly slides on two socket-head screws under
the dash - it's too close to the steering wheel and pressure on the wheel as
you brake moves them a bit closer.  The other possibility is wear in the
steering column bearing that lets the column move sideways enough to bring
the contacts together.
I must get round to moving something!
