    Yeah, your brake safety switch could be bad. Should be up under the dash where the brake pedal shaft goes up. You could double check and see if you have no brake lights--if you don't, then that's your problem for sure.

    Some cars have 2 separate switches so it's still worth getting under there.

    PS: There should be a slot somewhere near the gearshift where you can insert a screwdriver or some such and release the lever. If not, you can always pull the wires off the switch and join them temporarily to get the car moving---but your brake lights will also be permanently on until you unjoin (is that a word?) the wires.
