Steep driveway parking assistance?

So our new driveway is quite steep. The parking break in my truck can't hold the rig (not even close), and it's definitely putting strain on the selector pin (??)... I'm so worried about breaking something in the tranny that I'm parking on the street.

Is there anything (like a speed bump or something) specifically for this situation that would act like a permanent wheel chock that would prevent the strain on the tranny so I could start actually using my driveway?

Thanks for the info!!
