OilerFan; I agree on the frontal location, to prevent lower air-dam pan damage on some cars, even sedans/family types sit too low for parking blocks/stops. Small cars in the park spaces can stay farther away to prevent damage.

there should be an electronic version now. Plus, they need them in front so that people driving into a parking place don't drive too far and rake the front bottom portion of their car.

Years ago I bought a set, never installed the pair, had narrow W/W tires at that time, and did more parallel parking then. Todays cars sit low and I see many scraping their front bottom fairing panels on parking block stops(that area under the vehicle's chin)gets damaged often. "Whiskers" might help, noise type! Up front.......
