or put in the preamble

\hyphenation{Bus-Fahrer con-train-tes ré-so-lu-tion}%

By the way, in which language do you write? If not in English, you  
should use a font with the T1 encoding instead of Computer Modern, in  
order to have the proper line breaks. For example, the Latin Modern  


and of course, use the appropriate option of babel:

\usepackage[german]{babel}%if you write in German
