Default Is it dangerous to drive on the freeway with a missing lug nut?

I got a honda civic hatch back when i was changing rims Some how i messed up 1 of my lug nut socket and now when i try to put on a lug nut it just spins, its the front driver side wheel. So is it really dangerous to drive with only 3 lug nuts? on the freeway?

Not really, but you should get the wheel stud replaced asap just to be safe.
