It's not too often I even remotely disagree with The Dork... and I really don't in this case... be here are a few thoughts from someone who carries more often than not.
A knife is useless. It will much more likely end up doing you harm than good in almost any situation. If you couldn't handle the threat in a normal fistfight, chances are they would be able to take it from you anyway. A knife is a deadly weapon, but an altogether inferior one to any projectile firing device.... why bother when given the choice?
Legal carry should be an educated effort (training, knowing the law/your rights, situational awareness, etc), and there are very VERY few roadside situations where legal carry will help you out at all. You really don't have the right to brandish or use deadly force in just about any road rage encounter (in my limited knowledge, anyway... states vary ;) ). I absolutely encourage RESPONSIBLE people to carry, but part of being responsible is to educate yourself on the law(s), and to do your best to AVOID situations that lead up to needing deadly force. Carrying generally restricts where you can go and what you can do... doing so without knowing the consequences is perilous, to say the least. And crashing on your side-arm would suck, absolutely no doubt there.
Even if you do carry, the solution in that situation was to hang back and let discretion be the better part of valor. It will be almost every time, in my experience. All that said, I still carry whenever & wherever I can. But if you're not into training, education, and being more aware of your surroundings, don't bother.... just pin it and don't play fuck-fuck games with stupid people.
Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.
