I agree that I was very surprised to see that amenity=weighbridge is documented
in the wiki.
I also don't like the idea that it is a some kind of highway, so
seems to be the new favorite.

I would NOT use amenity!
And status=in_use? less than 400 total.
Besides several different spellings like
amenity=weigh_bridge (8), weightbridge (3) ,...
and other similar tags like
I've found several nodes or ways tagged e.g.
and further spelling variatons.
Of the above I would prefer
Can be applied to railways, highways with equal ease. And yes both railways and highways have them.
A weighting scale, machine may be for postal items, personal scales... a weighbridge is for vehicles.
I would think the critical things would be the weight limit and the weight resolution.
Not what kind of sensor is employed.
I guess most of them describe the same thing.
It would be great to have a tool which allows to contact
all mappers that used the different versions and ask
them to check if the most often used tag is matching.
Do we have a tool like that ? If not, would it be welcomed?
Need to be careful not to support spam!
Other than that .. yes, would make contact easier .. but a discussion page would be better rather than private emails?
