I am always asked, “What should I say to the police officer when I get pulled over?” My advice is simple you should be polite and cordial but never admit to speeding. Why? Because

if you do the police officer may make a note on the ticket that the operator admitted to the speed.

This will could come back and hurt your defense to the ticket. Say, for instance, you wanted to argue you were being absent minded and were not focuses on the speed (sometimes in the right circumstances a good defense) your argument would not be as strong because you already admitted to knowing how fast you were going.
