if your wheel pulls to one side when you brake, check your tire pressures, also look at getting a wheel alignment done (cost me $45 today).
If it's non of these, check the condition and type of tires, as different treat patterns will have different reactions on the road, and cause issues, also get a suspension test done to make sure your not suffering from a soggy or spongy suspension tower.
Perhaps you should tell us more, Shadi. Are you running standard wheels (size, offset) and with what tyres? Do you have a recent wheel alignment? How are your bushes? Has your car suspension been modified in any respect? What brakes do you have and how recently have they been checked for pad wear and disc condition? Is your problem only on bumpy roads or when stopping at red lights does it also happen on smooth roads?
The more we know, the more we can help you. You could add some more about your car to your profile as well.
EDIT: Hmm, some people have beaten me to some possibilities. Still, information is needed.

As for wheel allignment, make sure that you have a decent set of bushes none of the Burson or Pedders Nolathane Shyyyt...I learnt the long way (nolathane damage the chassis and they constantly need greasing...good for nothing)
and then once you purchase a set of Vlamos bushes.....then get a proper wheel allignment from;
"Pedders @ MOORABBIN"
I specifically say Moorabbin because they are basically the only one's who have been able to do my car right and they really look after your car as well.
Pedders at Brunswick for example are not the same in service and knowledge, matter of fact they are the one's that stuffed my front camber up and claim they cant get it back to the original setting on what it was
They allign a lot of race cars as there is a race track very close by to them.

i just recently had a wheel alignment i took it back and they said it most likely was my breaks i have standard 17 inch wheels it happends on red lights alot and when im driving on the freeway its feels very strange
Bit hard to read Shadi. Try a bit of punctuation. The use of capitals is good as well.
I have been through it all and this is what I found were the biggest factors: Tyres - when I first got my car it tramlined on 17" wheels with new sh*t brand tyres Wheels - Size of wheels (actually the profile) is a big factor Bushes/Suspension - more ride quality than actual tramlining Wheel alignment and balancing - this is the biggest culprit for the "strange behaviour" on motorways.
Finally, anyone who does wheel alignments for $45 does not do a proper job. You just can't do it in that time. Go to one of the recommended ones and get them to balance the wheels as well - make sure they don't take short cuts - many wheel balancing places will say that a couple of grams wrong here and there is OK. It often is not on a Soarer.
I just had mine redone for the umphteen time and now (after 7 years) it is finally perfect. It cost me $200 but the best money I have ever spent on the car.
