Will I receive a summons for a DUI
A few days ago got pulled over after a night out. Took a breathalyzer and was over he legal limit. The officer said he was not going to arrest me but towed my car and said I would have to pick it up the next day from a towing company and told me to take a taxi home. Even though he did not arrest me and let me leave I'm still nervous about revisiting a summons about it.

Second Offense OUI - refused breathalyzer
I had one oui 11 years ago so I know that i might qualify for a 24d disposition as a first offender, however, the registry is a completely different animal so I think its an automatic 3-year loss of license plus the 45-90 day loss of license and an alcohol program - and the registry even might make me to go to the 14-day in-patient program. I was wondering if I'm correct on the above and if I'm on probation would i have problems leaving the state to start work in Colorado?

How do I reinstate NH driver license after DUI with MA residency?
I was convicted of a DUI in NH as a NH resident with a NH drivers license. Since then I have moved to MA and plan on remaining here for the time being. I am having an incredibly difficult time finding an insurance company that will provide me with coverage and file the SR 22 with the DMV in NH as a MA resident. I contacted the MA RMV to see if they can just get me a new license and file an SR 22 with MA but they said I need to first re-instate in NH before converting anything to MA. I have tried nearly all insurance agencies and companies. Am I missing something? Any suggestions?
