I was recently pulled over for speeding on hwy 11. I was going up hill with cruise on, my truck slowed to about 115kmh when I got to the peak of the hill it dropped a gear and got to 124kmh, I was in the left lane and passed a car, it just so happened to be an unmarked patrol.
Here's a couple things that helped me immensley,
1. When he hit his lights I immediately indicated I was pulling over, signal on slowing down, don't hit the brakes, I doubt they want to hit you.
2. I found an area I could pull WAY off the side of the road to make it safer for him.
3. I rolled down all my windows, turned on my interior lights and put Both hands on the wheel.
4. I was very polite, asked permission to get my paperwork.
The officer dropped my ticket to 115kmh in a 100kmh zone. But he didn't put a fine in the boxes, the ticket was quashed when I went to pay it, I actually feel kinda bad about that as I was in the wrong and I know it.
So here's a question, do officers get in trouble when they fill out a ticket incorrectly, as in discipline?
As a general rule if I'm speeding I keep it around 20% of the limit, and putting about 1500km a week on our highways it's worked so far.
Thanks for keeping our highways safe.

No discipline. Errors happen from time to time.
Now if an officer would make errors on a majority of tickets, then it would be an issue to deal with and find out why those errors are happening.
