So, recently while at college i have only been driving my car 120 miles a weekend to see my gf. Not much strain at all on the car. But the last two times as i was taking circular on and off ramps for the highway my parking brake light has come on??? Now i do tend to take them harder than normal and push the throttle at the last bit of the turn, which is when it seems to click on, and goes out once i straighten out and ease off the throttle. Probably one of the weirdest things ive seen. Maybe im seeing things idk but either way doesnt hurt to ask if this has been seen before. Thanks

Check your brake fluid reservoir when turing the g's pull the fluid to the side causing the sensor/float to trip

Low reservoir's also point to almost depleted brake pads...

hehe I trip mine on my van all the time its funny cuz the van will do a warning ding when it lights up ( needs brakes badly rotfl )

check ur fluid. its probly too low, and as ur hitting those turns, its going to one side, setting off the sensor...worse if u hit the brakes.
