To the people down voting, this comment makes perfect sense. All newer cars (I have no idea exactly when it started) have a secondary hood latch. You have to both pull a lever in the car, and physically open a latch on the hood, exactly to avoid this. OP's car must be quite old to not have that feature.
Ummm. fail. Only way that happens is on a freeway, and it would be shaking dramatically with wind getting under it. There is no way you would miss that. Honestly, I've done it.. but it didn't flip up, it was still on the latch.
