Well.. this is one common problem that I used to find. I quite never learnt the art of refusal. Its a great study and needs situation based analysis to arrive at a solution.
So, whenever I have to say "No", I simple do the following: -
1. Change the topic of discussion
2. Counter attack. Ask something in return. (Obviously not money!!!)
Tell the truth and say, I am sorry that is something I do not feel comforable in doing. I do not want to be without an automobile for any length of time---because an issue may arise concerning my family. If I had two cars it would be different.
If your insurance allows it, then I would consider lending it a good friend with an excellent driving record. Other than that, I would have to say no but offer to drive them places.
Just say NO. Two times i gave my cat to my friends, both of time they accident
Just say no!!!! You are not comfortable with others, friends or not driving your car. If they are a true friend, they will understand and will be fine with it.
Definitely the insurance. My insurance doesn't cover drivers under 30, so I can always say no to my children. Has worked well, 16 year old daughter got job and bought own car and older son just doesn't ask.

Lady drivers tend to face car accidents, causing minor damages to the sides of the vehicle. Is this due to their comparatively poor ability to judge the width of the vehicle?
