For those rule freaks out there!

This is a question arising from a shadowrun game on the weekend:
Many runners have got special abilities (Like Cherry Bomb: Pay 5 nuyen to
trash target location, Jade: Pay 1 nuyen to prevent target runner from
unturning, Tin Man: Pay 1 nuyen to receive +1/+1 and so on).
Can I use these abilities WHENEVER I feel the urge? So for example if my
opponent plays a Z-Zone and I have Cherry Bomb in my safe house. May I turn
her at once and pay the 5 nuyen OR do I have to wait until it's my turn
again to use that trait? Same with Lord Torgo - allowed to trash as soon as
elves hit the table or until it's my turn again???

The moon by day and the sun by night.
Blind woman, deaf man and jackdaw fool,
Let the Lord of Chaos rule!
