I think the only thing I've done for weigh stations so far is put a
"exit_to=Weigh Station" on the exit nodes on interstates. But I could
certainly see using a highway=weigh_station or something like that for
the area, similar to highway=rest_area|services. Is there any use in
noting wich weigh stations support PrePass[1]? Maybe just a
prepass=yes|no tag? This is clearly visible on the road with signs
that tell drivers to follow in-cab PrePass prompts plus the
overhanging sensors to read the transponder.
