Another idea might be to use man_made=monitoring_station +
monitoring=weigh. But It I think isn't fitting  very well because
monitoring stations sounds like something is continuously analyzed.
I would prefer *weighbridge *over *truck_scale *(because we mostly stick to
tags in British English) and *man_made* over *amenity*.
These days amenity seems to have a very wide sense, too. I think for some
things facility would be more fitting (hospital/..) but this might just be
a problem of the German Translation.
