    This is an interesting question. The answer is that yes it can, but if you do the following calculation:

    120km/h = 33.3 m/s

    L = L' (1 - ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution carefully explains the problem. The length contraction and time dilation occurring at ordinary speeds are determined.
