One of the most popular perks for Washington D.C.'s power players has come to an end – members of Congress, Supreme Court justices and certain diplomats on Friday officially lost their parking privileges at Reagan National Airport.

Under new rules that went into effect Friday, a restricted lot that had been available to these officials is now closed.

The special lot had long enabled lawmakers to shave minutes off their trip to Capitol Hill for a crucial roll call vote — or get a head start on flights home for every congressional recess.

Lawmakers are now going home for the July Fourth recess, without their special lot.
