GPS-equipped taxis can generate large-scale trajectory data which enables scholars to uncover taxi abnormal behaviors, such as speeding. Hence, this study intends to disclose the characteristics of taxi speeding event (SE), identify the spatial factors impacting the frequency of taxi SE, using 5,757 taxis’ GPS trajectory data in a part of the central area of Chengdu city from November 1 to November 30, 2016, along with speed limit data, electronic map data, etc. By comparing the calculated travel speeds with speed limits, taxi SEs were identified and categorized into five groups: SE (
