Car chasing

Do your dogs do this? I'm working on training Sookie out of it. We don't walk on roads much so we don't get much practice. It isn't every single car, but say 1/3 of the cars that go by she will want to chase. Whenever I see one coming (we live in the middle of nowhere so there is never more than one car per walk, tops) I tell her "side" and we move off the road and she sits, but about ~33% of the time she'll try to go for it or really, really want to. If you all have had dogs like this, any tips on stopping it? When she sits for the "side" command she is focused on me but once the car goes by us the movement seems to break her attention and she wants it. Thanks in advance.
