We all worried it would happen, we all expected it to happen, and so it has finally and officially happened: A snow route parking ban will be put into effect for Calgary.

The snow plows are busy at work on Calgary’s priority one streets, and will evidently be making their way into residential streets starting at 10 am on Wednesday, October 3.
A release from the City of Calgary states that all cars parked in a snow route parking ban area will need to be relocated before 10 am tomorrow, and Calgarians can check to see if they are parked in one of those no-go spots by heading over to the city’s website and punching in an address.
A snow route parking ban will go into effect TOMORROW, October 3, at 10 am. During a ban, parking is temporarily restricted on designated snow routes for up to 72 hours. See which routes will have restrictions in place: https://t.co/zP5HlNnPHH #yycroads #yycsnow pic.twitter.com/k3foXwnHNo

The parking ban will be in place for up to 72 hours, and any vehicles found to be parked along the routes will be subject to a $75 ticket as well as the cost of a tow.
Exemptions to the ban include on-street accessible parking zones as well as ParkPlus zones, though only between 6 am and 9 pm for the latter.
