Always run by the book then you can cross them. I'd much rather deal with a scale than a car. Usually you can get a report what's going on at the scale a car on the other hand you never know what the officer is thinking. In the event you cann't cross the scale I always figure the scale house has four sides so there are atleast four ways around each one and obviously the one in front of the scale might not be a good choice so you still have three othe ways.
Good Luck!!

It is not against the law to go around the scale as long as you are on a state highway. Weight limit roads are what you have to be carefjul of. If you haul heavy you have to do what you have to do. Some states like Ga. N.C. Fl. the fines arent so bad, others out west are really tough. Good luck. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE
