At least that's the information I got from the dealer - I asked about a week ago.

Google has Street View's of London, so they are able to do the equivalent of drive recorder. They do have to scrub parts (license plate, faces) of the images before they publish them, but there doesn't seem to be a restriction on making the recordings.
No issue in the UK however I understand the restriction for the use of drive recorder or dash cams is in Germany. They have strict laws on this.
