Paying a bribe to a traffic cop

I. Read the following story:
Once I was in a hurry to work. I was driving towards Dobrolyubov street when a tram stopped at the tram station in front of me. I started going round the tram on the left carefully. Suddenly a traffic policeman / traffic cop / a road patrol /a bear pulledme over. It turned out, that I'd violated a very serious traffic rule. He said that I had to pay a fine of 5000 rubles or he would revoke my driver’s license. / disqualify me from driving / ground me. I was shocked and protested. But he was determined to issue a fine /ticket. Then I had to offer him a bribe of 3000 rubles. I said I didn’t have more cash. And he accepted the bribe. Now I try never to take over trams standing at tram stops.
