Whilst the sticking safety catch seems all too common, I would be more worried about the main catch sticking.
It seems that the partially siezed main catch sometimes allows the bonnet to release when driving, then open fully if the safety catch is stuck.
Put lots of
or grease on the main catch.
With the sticking safety catch - lubricate this with
or aerosol grease, then push the handle before closing to make sure it returns to the correct position.
