A part of Ashworth Road is smaller than most roads in West Des Moines. That section of road is from valley west drive to 8th street and it is small enough that at the best of times it's an extremely annoying nuisance and at the worst it can be become a very dangerous hassel to travel on. Part of the reason for this is that Ashworth Road is one of the more well traveled roads in West Des Moines due to being next to a highway and being a four laned road that allows easy travel to necessities. Thus the section of road that is smaller than most ends up being much more hazardous than other more remote roads. Here are a few examples of issues that I or others have come across while driving on Ashworth: Rubbing up against the side of the road due to limited space causing scratches and dents on car/tires, Not being able to pass cars due to the size of cars resulting in unnecessary annoyance of not being able to pass one another, cars driving in both lanes in order to avoid edge of road, cars in opposite lanes almost nearly hitting each other due to size of lanes/road, in winter times the smaller road creates less buffer before cars hit side of road. These issues are further extrapolated by the fact that I personally live on this road because Ashworth Road is a suburban road and many of the people who live in this area have most likely encountered the issues described above as I certainly have. Thus expanding(widening) this section of Ashworth Road to that of the rest of Ashworth road would help alleviate or out right get rid of many of the issues described above.
