Police said they explained the reason for the citation to the woman, whom they did not identify for FOX 13.
In Utah, drivers are required to yield to all pedestrians, regardless of whether or not the pedestrian is using a crosswalk.
"A driver is required to yield to all pedestrians even if they are not in a marked or unmarked crosswalk," the handbook states. "At school crossings where there is a traffic patrol, stop and yield as signaled."
