    Answer:

    False. Field is non-zero

    Explanation:

    If you were moving along with the electrons, they would appear stationary to you. You would measure a current of zero. However, the fixed positive charges in the wire seem to move backwards relative to you, creating the equivalent current as if you weren’t moving. You would measure the same field, but the field would be caused by the ‘backward’ motion of positive particles.
