I bet theres a catch
These are not free they will charge you £50 then you have to try and claim it back through your insurer better just go direct most insurance companies charge no more than £20.
I nearly got conned by them

Its free if your insurance has zero excess for chip repairs. Majority do. Bare in mind you will have to declare you have made an insurance claim for windscreen if you move providers. Nothing is free, you pay an insurance premium, hence why motor insurance is so expensive.
£10 smartphones have cameras on them

ALL new cars as Mandatory should have front and rear cameras (with audio and night vision), storage for a days recording, and unlimited recording on the cloud. This would cost car manufacturers at most £100 per car.

All insurance claims would need to be submitted with footage for evidence in the event of a crash
This would reduce insurance claims no end, share price of Admiral / Aviva etc would plummet
and tax payers would have more money improving roads, schools or hospitals and would save a fortune

Cheap cameras aren't worth the silicon they're made from.

Decent night-vision sensors (Sony) run upwards of $30 per unit, so you're looking at ~£70 just for the sensors, then you've got to add lenses (£10), image processing (£30), storage (£40). Then your "unlimited recording on the cloud" is gonna cost ~£30/vehicle/month for a data connection, and £30/day you own the car (You'll be generating around 1-2TB of data per day)

All of this hardware then has to go through the design process, approval, and be certified for use on UK roads

That "£100 per car" has now quickly ballooned into £150, and £900/month for storage

There's also major privacy concerns, what happens if you sell the car? Who gets access to the footage then? Do insurers have a legal right to the footage? What's to stop them doing spot-checks on you?
its got to be one these: "normally it is free but yours is a special crack and you need to pay a little bit to have it filled, hold on, it's actually deeper than i expected, you must pay £££ now or you will die next time you drive around, don't worry, i will give you 50% discount, etc..."
