Weather causes things to change throughout many of the Edmonton neighborhoods and the seasonal parking ban is a part of those changes. Along with this change, it's important to be aware of Neighbourhood blading. Understanding both of these things will help, especially if you're new to the city.
It's not a requirement for you to remove your vehicle from the street while removal vehicles do their job, but it's highly recommended. You won't have to worry about digging your vehicle out of the snow, if you remove it. When the bladed removal trucks head are deployed, they create windrows on both sides of the road. These are not removed by the city and you could find your vehicle stuck, if not removed first.
