Default Overweight/Oversize bags on Airlines

I have read where several airlines are now enforcing their regulations on what they consider to be oversized and/or overweight baggage.

My question is, if you check your bags at the airport at curbside check-in, are they measured and/or weighed? I have never seen them measured or weighed by the skycaps.

Just wondering.

I'm sure they would find a way to charge you. Probably hold your bags hostage until you paid the fee at your destination.

I just read on Continental Airlines site that bags must accompany passenger - maybe skycap service has altered since 9/11 - I would check for info on the airlines you are using.
