If the person charged with the violation denies part or all of the violation as charged in the appearance ticket, such person may complete the form likewise prescribed for that purpose and forward such form and appearance ticket, together with security in the amount of $25, to the office specified on such appearance ticket. Upon receipt, such answer shall be entered and a new return date established by said office.
