comment Should the color of Japanese stoplights really translate to “red / yellow / blue”?
I think it's more a question of perception than translation.

comment Can you use V-ます before から?
Would be better to say "Yes but" than "No". Specially if the OP is asking about sentences where it is ok to do so.

comment “Something came up” in Japanese
I don't really know about this. 急事 is something someone taught me when I asked the question the OP is asking to a coworker few years ago. To tell you the truth, because the kanji do not come up right away when typing, I think it's rather rarely used. I also used it in an email so I don't know if it is really used in speaking. For daily conversation, Electeur's answer is good.
