I've tried it at 2MPH, it's quite rocking, and continues back and forth for quite awhile.
0° is the maximum slope you should park without using the brake, in any car. More so true with the Leaf, having no compressive engine braking.
The "Park" is a pin, not a brake. It will not be able to stop you at more than a couple MPH. Any faster, and you will cause serious damage.
