On I 5 Southbound approaching Hubbard, OR, there's a weight sensor and
height sensor used at a preclearance site for the scales at Hubbard (and I
can verify that this view of this site is accurate as I've regularly
traveled through that preclearance since it was built).

It should be noted that trucks, buses, campers and all vehicles pulling
trailers are prohibited from the leftmost lane of the three-lane-on-a-side
segments of I 5 in Oregon, hence the lack of sensors in the passing lane.
