First, why is there no ability to fine? Even if there is no provision for that now in the Governing Documents, the (Pennsylvania) Board can enact a fine policy/rule/regulation that is effective going forward.
Next, as to the underlying issue, the residents storing their scooters in the hallways. If that is prohibited by your Governing Documents, and they are not disabled, then enact a find policy (per the preceding paragraph) and enforce it. If one or more of the residents is disabled, then you need to discuss what a reasonable accommodation will be, one that helps that person with their issue and that also keeps the hallways safe for everyone else. If there is no good reason they leave the scooters in the hallways, other than not wanting to take up space in their Unit, then I suggest that is not medically-related (regardless of the need for the scooter) and they should be required to take them into their units.

Hallways are general common area. Board has complete authority in that area. Therefore, the scooters can be taken away by the board at any time without warning.
I cannot see how a disability would require a scooter needing to be stored in the hallway. It can easily be stored in the unit instead.

I would recommend a rule that does not allow storage of personal property in hallways or storage of any items outside any units in common hallways. The rule should be kept fairly generic so that the Association can disallow any person property stored in common areas.
