I have never driven into the area of one. I'm guessing the display is visible from your TV. Are weigh station scales in all states set up like this?
So far I have been able to use scales in Washington, Oregon, and Colorado all had remote scale displays visible from drivers seat. Accuracy is in 25 to 50 lb. incriminates.
I figure if they are closed and don’t have a gate treat like a rest area.

I did a recent weight at the CAT scales. Had everything in and on (bikes) the trailer and was full of fuel including auxiliary tank for the generator (which I usually travel with empty). Was well under weight.
Unless I add a major component to the truck or trailer I do not plan on weighing again.
I can do the math for what is added to the inventory.

I try not go more than 65, I could go faster (my tire are rated for 81 mph), but why? I am not in that much of a rush plus I need time to react to situations that may occur. Happy towing.
