There is one at each wheel. The car needs one for each wheel for ABS and anti-spin stability control. They go for about $65 each, which is not bad.

You can see them if you drill-down on the "front axle" and "rear axle" diagrams here.

You might be thinking of the brake pad wear sensor if you only saw it on the front driver's side. There is a front left and rear right brake pad sensor (2 total) but 4 speed sensors.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
