If a man who is stationary times a car moving and the car itself has a clock that measures itself moving. And they both measure out 1 complete second, will the man whos stationary since he moves faster in times dimension think that the cars speed is slower compared to the clock which is in the car because his second happens much faster than the cars.

Anyways i did some number playing and calculated that if the cars clock measures that the car moved 100 m in that 1 second than the stationary man will think that the car only moved 99.999964 m or something which is a slightly smaller distance obviously. So are they both equally right because everyones reference of time is relevant to their movement in spatial dimensions? So it all depends on the observer's speed in spatial dimensions as to what the speed of time will be.

im hoping I am on the right track here because it all seems to make sense right now. Thanks in advance for any clarification.
