More than likely that blue disc came from the brake light switch. You state that the brake lights will not go off. The solution is a relatively easy fix. Under the dash near steering column, attached to the brake rod (or above brake pedal) is the switch that controls the brake lights. It is usually held in place with a small connecting rod with a kotter pin or clip. Remove the pin or clip and slowly pull the switch out while (depending on design) slowly pulling the brake pedal rod the opposite direction. Be careful when removing the plug(s) on old switch. Replace the new switch in the opposite order in which you removed the old switch.

2003 ford escort zx2 brake lights stuck on

there is a switch attached to the upper portion of the brake pedal, fittingly enough called the brake pedal switch. the plastic probably came from that. aside from contorting your body to get to the switch, it is relatively easy fix.

Why do the brake lights remain on after you turn off the car?

This is most likely a malfunctioning (stuck?) brake light switch. The switch should be at the top of the brake pedal under the steering column.
