Call the cop and "see what he can do for you?" No. Look, the cops are not the "officer friendly's" you were told they were when you were a Cub Scout. They have their own agenda and have a job to do. They are not your buddies that you go chat it up with to make things disappear. In fact, this cop has NO DISCRETION on how to handle this case. Either him or a co-worker detective will in fact be applying for a warrant for your arrest once the blood test comes back showing that you were intoxicated. All you will be doing by calling and talking to the cops is give them more evidence.
So first off SHUT UP! STOP TALKING ABOUT THE CASE! DO NOT CALL THE POLICE! Second, don't walk but RUN to a CT criminal defense lawyer that specializes in DWI cases. You desperately need a lawyer to protect your interests. You damn near killed yourself, and could have killed others, driving around drunk and stupid. You were so wasted that you don't even know what caused you to lose control of your car.
In plain English, you are in deep $hit. You absolutely need a lawyer to prevent you from getting in more trouble, keep you out of jail, and protect your legal interests.See question

You can do anything you want, however to "request a dismissal" requires you making a formal motion to dismiss on notice. Then, you have to go to court and argue the motion. Not only does this require court appearances, but also requires that you hit a law library to learn the law of speedy trial as well as the procedure as to what a motion on notice is and how to make one.
You should hire a lawyer, because a lawyer can go to court FOR YOU so that you do not have to personally appear. A lawyer can move to dismiss without you being there, or dispose of the case in a different way. Check out Avvo profiles. Choose a lawyer that specializes in traffic ticket defense, has an Avvo 10 rating, and also has hundreds of online testimonials.See question
How would one go about getting important evidence for their defence such as an officer's notes to fight a ticket in the Traffic Violations Bureau?
The "how to" of which you request is the inventory we sell. If we told you how to do it on your own we'd be out of business. Suffice to say a lawyer that practices just traffic ticket law knows how to best represent you, including demanding and obtaining discovery and disclosure. Hire a qualified attorney. Short of that you can look up the "how to" answers in any law library.See question
