Car clocking

Was watching a documentary on the beeb the other nigth about car clocking.

Apparently you can get a hpi check on cars to ensure that the actual mileage shown in the dash is correct...

but how does the company know what is correct? I mean who actually watches over us driving...i could be doing 100 miles in a week or 1000miles in a day...
not sure how all this works...lol
