Is it true that in busy streets. Steel frame building is not recommended because there would be lots of vibration that can dislodge the concrete wall binding with the steel i-beam? But how about in RC (Reinforced Concrete) frames. Would there be significantly less vibration that it is more recommended in busy streets?

If you know of other pro and con of steel vs RC frame. Please share it. Thanks.
