Check the stop light switch on the brake pedal.

The problem is with the turn signal switch.The only cure is to replace the turn signal switch which is in the steering colum. This runs about $600.00 . This happens in 1995 to 1999 Monte Carlo's. Somtimes you can put your turn signal on to left or right then back to center and brake lights will work until you use your turn signal again.

I have this problem as we speak the cheap and quick fix is to pull the turn signal in to the point right before it clicks on your high beams during stopping. After awhile it will become second nature but you will realize you keep doing even in diffrent cars.
