 From memory in the Western US I've seen "no trucks" and then in smaller 
writing "over 6 tons" or similar.  Some kind of note about what the 
local rules are likely to be (or something explicit, if it's explicit).  
I'm sure other people can suggest how they'd tag max weight for a road 
(it's not something that I've done).
