In my experience, if the ditch is too deep and narrow a hard rain will cause it to become an even deeper gully. A more gradual depression after the road crowning mentioned above, and sown with a deeply rooted vetch type cover crop would be both attractive and keep the soil where it belongs. These cover crops can be mowed to keep them under control.
