Had a BAIID violation back in August of last year received a 3 month extension. I now received a letter stating two violations occurred within a 20 minute period on my last report. I already have my license back and the BAIID returned. I know that each violation counts as an additional 3 months each so will I be extended 6 months but will that mean I have had 3 extensions and my car will be impounded?
Technically, yes, but it is up to the prosecutor in the county where you got your DUI to decide if they want to pursue the impoundment of your vehicle. If they decide to try to impound your vehicle then you receive a notice, so make sure your address is current with the clerk's office. If it is not and you do not get the notice as a result then the matter may proceed without you. There are limited defenses to the impoundment, so unless you can live without the car for that period of time you should consult with an attorney to assist you.

Do not diagnose yourself. Take the letter to a lawyer, preferably the one who represented you. The lawyer may just be stating you had two refusals and giving you an opportunity to explain them. Do nothing yourself. See a lawyer before you mess this up.
Have your counsel of record to look into that.
