Because of this, I am very careful never to give them any notice, and I avoid riding by schools. I don't need someone accusing me of being a creeper.
That is pretty paranoid. I'm really not worried about that myself after-all, I'm not a perv. If they wave at you, wave back, they will appreciate it and you haven't done anything that would make someone think that you are doing anything wrong.
