How do I stop my dog from running towards the road?

Lately my dog has been trying to get to the road more often. I believe it's because our neighbor has a dog and he always keeps him off his leash. My dog thinks it's a good idea to just run across the road. Is there a way to assert myself more and stop her from running out to the road like this?

Do you not keep your dog in a fenced-in yard?

I would recommend investing in an electrical fence if this is not the case. It is hard to train a dog not to run to another dog. I had this issue and I no longer let my dog out in the front yard.

Ah, my dog will bolt towards nowhere if I ever let me leash off, this behavior could be trained but very difficult for domesticated dogs.
