MEDFORD, Ore. — On October 1st, five people were arrested for DUII in Jackson County. One DUII incident even led to a crash and death. 

NewsWatch 12 reached out to Sheriff Nathan Sickler about this night and asked if it was normal. He said it was an unusual night. He also informed me that there were around 220 DUII arrests this year. Which is pretty much the same compared to last year. 

In December Uber and Lyft will celebrate their 1st year in Medford. Even with the ride sharing company the DUII arrests still didn't decrease. 

"You would think that having options to help prevent DUII would be great, but ultimately it's a personal choice for individuals to make themselves to not drink and drive and to take advantage of some of those ride sharing and other options out there," said Sheriff Sickler. 

Riding sharing services like Uber and Lyft were just approved by the Ashland City Council last month.
