Cell phone holders/holsters?

It should but wouldn't do it

I may have screwed up in trying, which I did, but was 1. Surprised, and 2. Checking traffic to get to the side of the road. Potential driver error during recovery attempt.

Thanks for the info all

I tried the curb ramps but the problem is a bit further up. It's a really crappy driveway design and is quite steep at the bottom.
