CONCERNS re: shakedowns from police

We are going to be arriving this weekend and staying in Cabo. We are seasoned travelers. We were planning on renting a vehicle to explore up both coasts. Day tripping to Todos Santos and possibly driving across Baja to go to another small town then back to Cabo. I realize that this type of police activity is not new, we actually had been stopped in Cancun several years ago while renting jeeps for "speeding" (which we weren't). Anyway, I am concerned by some responses that this is happening more frequently now. Is it really as risky as is sounds from all of the responses? Any new "to do's or not to do's if we pulled over for "no apparent reason?" Thanks.
