I have driven thousands of loads. 780 last year alone. In my entire career I have had maybe 5 loads that I was not able to scale. Usually if no t/s scale you can scale at a moving company or many farms that hual heavy loads like grain. There are also public scales I have used. I always kept a journal of where I found reliable parking & scales in my travels & as a last resort you can have a release of liability sent to a scalehouse so you don't have to pay the fine. I had a load were the company did that at the POE because my bulk load of scrap metal kept moving on me.
