your car could have been hit by a freight train in the rear and the airbags would not deploy unless, of course, you hit something in the front after the rear end collision had already occurred. the sensors are in the front and are designed to deploy the srs units if the occupants are in danger of going forward not backwards as the case in a rear end collision.
