Safe travel in puebla area?

Headed to Puebla in 2 weeks and taking our 14 yr old. Are there any current warnings or problems in that area? Are there military checkpoints on the bus route from Mex. City to Puebla? Don't want my daughter to panic if something like that happens. Thanks.

Nothing has changed in that area - no drug cartel activity. Checkpoints move around - sometimes they are put up because police are looking for a particular person or car. They are really nothing to be scared of (in the very unlikely case you come across one).
