They are also backup lights. They light up a lot more behind you than the little lights in the tail lights do. If they aren't working there is an issue somewhere.

Those lights in the rear bumper actually come in pretty handy when parallel parking at night

If they're not coming on while in reverse, take a look at the harnesses for corrosion/sh!t on the connections. They get everything shot up at them from your rear tires, so that could be the issue. While you're looking, figure out some way to cover the entire rear of the lights from the inside to prevent this.
