Default Handbrake warning

I'm still getting these errors/beeps when starting the car warning of the handbrake being on (getting more frequent now, and does it more often than not). Now this should only alert/beep if I put the handbrake on whilst the car is still moving, yet its coming up when starting parked on the driveway. It only comes on momentarily and disappears again. Now as this should only alert if the car is moving, I presume it "thinks" the car is moving, but I don't see the speedo move at all. I have checked with PP and no faults are present for any ABS sensor.
What else can I do guys.... its extremely annoying on each startup

It was doing it in the summer too, but its just doing it a lot more now than then. Didn't do it very much last winter, despite the cold weather.

The display flashes up "Handbrake!" on the centre display, and the red P in the display between revs and speedo. I can replicate the exact thing if starting to put the handbrake on when still moving.... just can't for the life of me work out why it does it when parked.
I had tried to get to the handbrake switch, but not that easy, and then I thought that if the car isn't moving, it shouldn't make a difference if the switch is on or not.... but it does always show on the dash that handbrake is on when it should be, so presume the switch is working OK.

Happens to me sometimes as well, but very intermittent.

Happened to mine a fair bit prior to having complete failure of the offside rear wheel sensor.

They 'may' just need cleaning' and reseating!

Nope, its still doing it. Did try cleaning around the sensor when replacing the rear discs, but didn't remove it though. Its not the front sensors as both these have been replaced already.

Have a look on planet, you'll notice one or two of them registering speed when stationary.
