It's not just for terrorism though, people get run over in accidents everyday because pedestrians and cyclists are forced to share the street with heavy machinery (cars). I really think my first option should be standard on high streets - if it works in Holland, Germany, etc, why can't it work worldwide? Furniture stores aren't on high streets anyway, they're in strip malls or in Ikea's case, they take up a whole street with underground parking.

And the dual-level idea is something I've seen first hand where I live. All along the coast, there are pedestrian footpaths several metres below the road, all along the coast. Separate bike lanes too. They would just need to be reversed so the roads are lower than the footpaths.
