    But I don't think he would have had a reason to lie about that, AND I do know people that are that careful.  If he has never had a ticket, maybe he isn't lying about that.

      The assumption is that lying is stressful.  But to many people lying is not stressful, they are very comfortable lying.

      To very nervous people being questioned, the fact that a question is being asked to prove their guilt is sufficient to get a stress reaction which will show a truthful answer as a lie.
