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.

Its not that dangerous...i had one stripped for over a year...Im too busy to fix it and don't wanna pay anybody...but ive driven from Indiana to New York...700 miles goin 80 mph and didn't have no problem..and ive made the drive 4 times...so it should be alright but def get it fixed..
