Default Brake Light

I have a 98 Camry with 57K miles on it. Great car! For the last couple of
days, my brake warning light keeps coming on and going off. The brake fluid
level is OK. The brakes work fine, no noise when I brake. We had snow last
night and the ABS worked pretty good this morning. What can be the cause of
brake light coming on and going off? Is it dangerous to drive the car if
this happens? Thanks!

Does it go out if you lift up on the parking brake pedal with your
foot?

Add some fluid..... Even if the level looks O.K. add some. This has worked
before, and has been mentioned in this group numerous times. If this
doesn't work, the go to plan B.....

This is what I also noticed.
The level switch in the brake fluid container seems to have a setpoint,
higher than the marks on the container.
