US tons, certainly (and it has caught mappers out in the past when 
they've been looking for rogue values to correct).

The UK uses (generally) metric measures for maxweights, a combination of 
both UK and metric for heights, and UK motorways have distances on signs 
in miles and what people from the USA would call "mile markers" in 
kilometers.  Confused, you will be...
