Alternatively, Alice pays more in bribe money than it would have cost for her to just pay the ticket.
Zig Zagged: Alice tries to pay off the cop, who refuses her money. She goes to trial, bribes the judge, and it looks like she's going to get off. However, she and the judge are both caught in the bribe, and so she's tried again, fails to bribe the new judge, and goes to jail. She then bribes the jailer into "accidentally" leaving the keys in the lock of her cell.
Averted: Alice doesn't have enough money, or else, she wouldn't try it anyway.
Alice: "Do I look like an ATM? I'll see you in traffic court!"
Discussed: "C'mon Alice, just pay the guy off, you have the money."
Conversed: "I hate watching those rich bozos just bribe their way out of anything that goes wrong!"
Deconstructed: Alice's constant bribery to get out of trouble is whittling down her bank account.
Alice's constant bribery to get out of trouble is whittling down her bank account but she runs a massive megacorporation which provides her more than she needs, and in some cases (especially in dystopias) paying your fines is actually cheaper than trying to follow the law in the long run.
Alice decides to take a different approach. She doesn't bribe the cop trying to arrest her. Instead, she spends money on the people who can make the cop's life a living hell. After a while, the threat of her whittling down her account is fixed: She doesn't even need to make bribes because she's built up a reputation and the threat of what'll happen if people piss her off is enough. Fixes the problem of people who can't be bought, too: There's always someone who CAN.
